The newly published Qatar Power Report from BMI projections that the country’s power consumption will increase from an estimated 20.3TWh in 2010 to 42.5TWh by the end of the projection period, assuming 7.7% average annual growth. After power market usage and system losses, we see surplus supply rising from an estimated 1.7TWh in 2010 to 4.0TWh by 2020, assuming 7.8% average annual growth in power generation during the period.
According to BMI, end-2010 Qatari installed generating capacity will have been 3.3GW, rising to a projection 3.8GW by 2015, then to 4.9GW by 2020. Qatar’s power generation in 2010 is put by BMI at 22.0TWh, having risen 14.8% from the 2009 level. BMI is projecting an average 9.4% annual increase to 34.4TWh between 2011 and 2015.
Gas will remain the sole source of electricity supply. Gas-fired generation is expected to rise from an estimated 22.0TWh to 46.5TWh over the period to 2020. In 2009/10, US oil major ExxonMobil completed a US Dollar 3bn plan to grow gas field output to 16.5bcm, which will be used to fuel power plants and industrial customers in Ras Laffan, the RasGas liquefied natural gas (LNG) project and as feedstock at the Oryx gas-to-liquids (GTL) project. The first and second phases of the US Dollar 1.8bn Mesaieed power station are now onstream with capacity of 2.7GW.
In spite of considerable solar and wind power potential, renewables will not feature in the Qatari power generation mix for the foreseeable future. Much higher-end user power prices would be needed to justify the high build costs of renewable energy plants.
Qatar is ranked first ahead of the UAE in BMI’s updated Power Business Environment Ratings, thanks largely to its industry size and low level of energy import dependency, and in spite of its particularly low proportion of renewables use. The power segment is competitive, with good progress towards privatisation. The regulatory environment remains relatively unattractive.
