Future Energy and Hydrogen Development Summit

Powering the Future: Unleashing Qatar's Clean Energy Potential

Charting a New Course for Clean, Integrated, and Resilient Energy Ecosystems: Uniting Global Energy Experts in Qatar

Join international energy experts, policy makers and government representatives as they convene for this comprehensive 2-day summit to establish policies, strategies and partnership pathways to accelerate Qatar's LNG and hydrogen production, supply, and distribution across the globe.

Qatar: Becoming a force to reckon with in the global energy industry

Qatar offers lucrative market opportunities for both LNG and hydrogen production. With its vast reserves of natural gas, particularly in the North Field, Qatar is well-positioned to expand LNG production and maintain its status as the world's largest LNG supplier. The country has ambitious plans to increase LNG production from 77 million tonnes to 126 million tonnes annually by 2027. 

Qatar, with its abundant natural gas reserves, also aims to become a major exporter of green and blue hydrogen. Qatar plans to develop a green hydrogen production facility with a capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum by 2025. Leveraging economies of scale and lower production costs, Qatar is poised to capitalize on the increasing global demand for hydrogen and contribute to the growth of this promising industry.

Supported by favorable government policies and its strategic location in the Middle East, Qatar enjoys a competitive advantage in the LNG and hydrogen markets. The country's reputation as a reliable energy supplier further enhances its market dominance making it an attractive playing field for global powerhouses and energy companies.
