Total Energy consumption

The country's total energy consumption per capita is very high at around 18 toe, including 14 300 kWh of electricity (the 5th highest level of electricity consumption per capita in the world).

The total consumption has increased rapidly between 2000 and 2014, growing at an average rate of +11% per year. It decreased significantly in 2016 and rebounded again in 2017, reaching 48.6 ...

Crude oil production

In 2017, total oil production amounted to 77 Mt, i.e. double the production of 2000. Oil production has been increasing until 2013 (80 Mt) and has been slightly decreasing since then; the growth was mainly explained by the increase in NGL production, which in 2017 accounted for 50% of the production.

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

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Although Qatar submitted an Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) in preparation of the COP21 and ratified the Paris agreement in April 2016, no firm commitments were made to reduce its GHG emissions.

CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion have increased more than threefold since 2000, from 24 MtCO2 to 87 MtCO2 in 2017 (+9%/year). Qatar's carbon-intensive economy, ...
