DUBAI (Dow Jones Newswires), December 4, 2008
Qatar is on track to more than double its production capacity of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to 77 million tons a year by 2010 despite falling energy prices, the country's energy minister said Wednesday.
"From December to 2010, we will add 46 million tons a year of LNG," Abdulla Bin Hamad Al Attiyah said at a Dubai conference, adding that this would make the Persian Gulf state the world's top LNG exporter.
A new LNG train with capacity of 7.8 million tons a year will come on stream in December, Al Attiyah said.
