🇶🇦 Qatar to withdraw from OPEC in January 2019 | Al Jazeera English



#Qatar will withdraw from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the Gulf nation’s Energy Minister Saad Sherida al-Kaabi announced on Monday.

The decision to quit the bloc of 15 oil-producing countries that account for about 40 percent of the world’s oil production was confirmed by Qatar Petroleum, the country’s state oil company.

Speaking at a news conference in Doha, al-Kaabi said: “The withdrawal decision reflects Qatar’s desire to focus its efforts on plans to develop and increase its natural gas production from 77 million tonnes per year to 110 million tonnes in the coming years.”

Qatar is the first Gulf country to leave the bloc of oil-producing countries.

Al Jazeera correspondent Charlotte Bellis said that Qatar made the decision just days ahead of a December 6 OPEC meeting.

“They say it has nothing to do with the blockade on Qatar and that they have been thinking about it for several months now,” Bellis said, reffering to a diplomatic blockade on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates ( UAE ), Egypt and Bahrain.

“They also said that if you want to withdraw from OPEC it had to be done before the end of the year,” she added.

“They said they wanted to do this now and be transparant ahead of a December 6 OPEC meeting.”

Since 2013, the amount of oil Qatar produced has steadily declined from about 728,000 barrels per day in 2013 to about 607.000 barrels per day in 2017, or just under 2 percent of OPEC’s total output.

Meanwhile, total production during the same period increased from 30.7 million barrels per day to 32.4 million barrels per day.

Qatar joined OPEC in 1961, one year after the organisation’s establishment.

Earlier this week, OPEC and Russia, who together produce about 40 percent of the world’s oil, said they agreed on new oil production cuts to ensure the oil price does not drop too much in the coming months.

In October, the oil price reached a four-year high of $86, but since then the price has dropped again to about $60 per barrel.
