Qatar LNG export to the US may drop

May 25, 2010
Qatar may end up exporting just 6 million metric tons of LNG a year to the United States after diverting as much as 20 million metric tons a year to other countries, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Industry HE Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah said in an interview published by the Middle East Economic Survey on May 24.
Al-Attiyah said that Qatar “may divert 12-20 million metric tons per year” away from the US market. “This means our gas exports to the US would remain in the range of 6 million metric tons  per year,” he said.
