Fuelled by the world's third largest proven conventional gas reserves, Qatar has positioned itself as the leading global exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Rising competition, led by liquefaction growth in Australia and potentially the US and East Africa, will pose a challenge to Qatar's hold on the global gas market later in the decade. Qatar is responding by making increasing efforts diversify its economy through expanding its downstream and petrochemical sectors .The country is growing the international presence of Qatar Petroleum International to offset what will likely be slow growth in domestic oil and gas revenues given the absence of plans for an expansion of LNG and GTL export capacity.

We highlight the following trends and developments in Qatar's oil and gas sector:

* The first phase of the Barzan natural gas project is due to begin production before the end of 2014 and was 80% complete in December 2013. Barzan gas could add as much as 17bn cubic metres (bcm) of new production from 2015, which will largely supplement declining projects elsewhere and supply new gas for Qatar's domestic market. Phase II of the project could completed by late 2015.
* Qatar is expected to see reduced investment in its oil and gas sector over the coming quarters. The moratorium on the North Field is expected to remain in place until at least 2015, cutting the prospects for new gas related projects over the next two years. We anticipate this to be a longer-term trend as Qatar attempts to diversify its economy in order to rely less on oil and gas. The majority of upstream investment in the next three years will focus on oil field redevelopments.
* Qatar's upstream prospects are increasingly limited with the North Field moratorium in place and no expansions for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and gas-to-liquids (GTL) capacity in the pipeline. Qatar is facing growing challenges from the expansion of LNG liquefaction facilities in Australia and eventually the US...
