Crude oil production

In 2015, total oil production amounted to 74 Mt, i.e. double the production of 2000, a growth mainly explained by the increase in Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) production, which in 2015 accounted for almost 50% of the production.

Qatar exports about 60% of its oil production (crude and NGL)...
