Qatar’s LNG exports diversifying, says QNB Group

Through the 1990s and 2000s Qatar invested heavily in LNG production, with exports beginning in late 1996. Ten years later, Qatar was the world's largest exporter and in 2011 it exported 76m tonnes of LNG, accounting for 31 per cent of the global market. The next largest exporter was Malaysia with 24m, less than one-third of the tonnage.
