Qatar well-positioned to meet Asian LNG demand, minister says

Gulf nation bullish on upping gas production and remains doubtful of renewables

Qatar's Energy Minister Saad Sherida al-Kaabi.

DOHA -- Qatar is ready to further boost investment in liquefied natural gas production, beyond its current plan to increase annual capacity to 110 million tons by 2024, according to Energy Minister Saad Sherida al-Kaabi.

In an interview with Nikkei, Qatar's energy czar said Asian demand for LNG will continue to grow rapidly and that he remains skeptical the world will shift significantly from fossil fuels to renewables in the near future.
