Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani said on Tuesday that Qatar’s liquefied natural gas production capacity will rise to 126 million tonnes a year by 2027. Al Thani touted a carbon capture facility Qatar is building – the biggest in the Middle East – he said, which will isolate and store 2.5 million tonnes of carbon per year in four years. By 2030, the facility will isolate 9 million tonnes per year. He adds that Qatar is also ready for cooperation with Iran and Iraq on the gas market. Meanwhile, Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi said Iran has high capacity for gas production for domestic use and exports and will play an important role in international markets.
