Qatar: bonds

Qatar is one of the most prosperous countries in the world, with a nominal GDP per capita of QR364,536 (U.S.$100,147) in 2011 based on Qatar’s 2011 mid-year population figure of 1,732,638. Over the last several years, Qatar has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world. As of January 2011, Qatar’s proven reserves of hydrocarbons amount to approximately 181.3 billion barrels of oil equivalent. These hydrocarbons consist of proven reserves of approximately 883.2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 2.3 billion barrels of crude oil and 22.1 billion barrels of condensate. Virtually all of Qatar’s proven reserves of natural gas and condensate are located in the North Field, which is estimated by the U.S. Energy Information Administration to be the largest non- associated gas field in the world, representing approximately 15% of the world’s natural gas reserves in 2009. Qatar has over 100 years of proven gas reserves at projected long-term production levels.
The Government’s total outstanding indebtedness as of 31 March 2012 was QR207,161 million (U.S.$56,912 million), with internal indebtedness of QR119,288 million (U.S.$32,771 million) or 57.6% of total indebtedness, and external indebtedness of QR87,873 million (U.S.$24,141 million), or 42.4% of total indebtedness, excluding the issue of the Trust Certificates.
