Qatar announces withdrawal from OPEC
Qatar’s decision reflected its desire to focus its plans to develop and increase its natural gas production, the state-owned petroleum company said in the statement. Over the coming years, Qatar aims to increase its natural gas production to 110 million tons/year from its current level of 77 million tons/year.
According to figures from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), Qatar’s crude oil production was the second lowest in OPEC and the country was the third-smallest crude oil exporter among members in 2014. Qatar currently ranks as the largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world.
