According to data from S&P Global Platts Analytics, Qatar was the world’s biggest LNG exporter last year, with gas supplies reaching 110.2 bcm (billion cubic metres). It was followed by Australia at 107.2 bcm, then the US at 96.3 bcm.
Additionally, Qatar has the LNG production capacity of up to 77 million mt/year (metric tonne per year), with further plans to ramp up this figure through its North Field expansion project—the largest in the world.
Through the expansion project, QatarEnergy is set to become the largest provider of natural gas by 2030.
