As of early 2020 Qatar’s energy sector was on the threshold of major expansion plans that will allow it to benefit from growing global demand for cleaner sources of power generation. Although operations surrounding the North Field Expansion have been postponed until at least 2021, upon commencement of the project the country’s total output of liquified natural gas and polyethylene is predicted to increase by approximately 64% and 82%, respectively, over a period of around seven years. This is likely to provide a major boost for international oil companies, as well as engineering firms, shipbuilders and local Qatari businesses. This chapter contains an interview with Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, CEO, Qatargas.
