Qatar, UAE energy ministers say gas will be needed for long time
Saad al-Kaabi, Qatar’s minister of state for energy, told the Global Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi that gas was “not a transition fuel” but a destination fuel, adding that it was not fair to some in the West who say that African countries should not be digging. for oil and gas.
UAE Energy Minister Suhail al-Mazrouei, speaking on the same panel, agreed that “for a very long time, gas will be there” and that while more renewable energy would be installed, it was necessary more investment in gas as a base load.
