Energy and Natural Resources 

The major portion of Qatar's revenue and GDP comes from hydrocarbons and the country is now now one of the richest nations in the world with GDP per capita exceeding $100,000. Qatar is the biggest exporter of LNG in the world and is also a high-end oil producer. As well as developing and producing hydrocarbon products, the country is making considerable progress in producing and distributing electricity and enhancing the water supply system.

Qatar naturally hosts a significant number of international and national companies operating in the energy and natural resources sector. The ever increasing global demand for energy, volatile markets, evolving political and regulatory priorities, emerging new technologies and increasing cost pressures make it clear that energy and natural resources companies are facing one of their most challenging times. For many of these organizations, a key to adapting will be finding an informed perspective that can help them position themselves for what the future may bring.
