Total Energy consumption

The country's total consumption has experienced strong increases since 2000, growing at an average rate of +11% per year, and reaching 46 Mtoe in 2014. It is distributed between gas (83%) and oil (17%).

Crude oil production

In 2014 total oil production amounted to 78.5 Mt, i.e. double the production of 2000, a growth mainly explained by the increase in non-crude liquids production, which for the first time in 2010 exceeded crude oil production and in 2014 represented 60% of the total liquid production.

Oil products consumption

Oil consumption increased very rapidly between 2000 and 2014 (12%/year), pushing consumption up to 7 Mt in 2014, mainly driven by transport (60% of total oil products consumption).

Power consumption

Electricity consumption has increased very rapidly since 2000 (12%/year, on average). In 2014 electricity consumption reached 34 TWh due to the increasing use of air conditioning and the soaring water desalinisation industry. With 14.5 MWh/capita (2014), Qatar has the 5th highest...

Renewable in % electricity production

The country strives to meet 20% of its energy demand from renewable sources by 2030. It aims to reach a solar power capacity of 1 800 MW by 2020, for a cost estimated between US$10bn and US$20bn.

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion have increased more than threefold since 2000, from 24 MtCO2 to 77 MtCO2 in 2014 (+9%/year). Qatar's carbon-intensive economy, combined with a low population density, leads to the highest level of per capita emissions in...
