Qatar to Drill in World’s Biggest Gas Field After 12-Year Freeze

Bloomberg reports: Qatar Petroleum plans to start a new development in the offshore North Field, ending a 12-year ban on new projects that allowed the company to assess how its current rate of extraction affects the giant reservoir it shares with Iran. The patch, in the southern section of the field, will have a capacity of 2 billion cubic feet per day, or 400,000 barrels of oil equivalent, and should start production in five to seven years, Chief Executive Officer Saad Sherida Al Kaabi told reporters Monday at Qatar Petroleum’s headquarters in Doha. By ending the moratorium and earmarking new volumes for exports, QP is giving itself the fuel necessary to reclaim the top spot among LNG exporters it will relinquish to Australia in 2019, if it wants it. Al Kaabi said the company hasn’t decided if exports will be in the form of LNG, or other products. If it goes for the super-chilled fuel, the new production can be converted to 15.3 million tons of LNG a year. Qatar currently produces about 77 million tons annually. For more visit or click
