Germany and Qatar are arguing about the terms of liquefied gas supplies | News from Germany about Germany | DW

Germany and Qatar faced difficulties in negotiations on long-term supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG) due to disagreements over a number of key conditions, Reuters reported on Tuesday, May 10, citing three informed sources.

According to the agency, Germany, which intends to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 88 percent by 2040, is unwilling to agree to Qatar’s demands to conclude contracts for at least 20 years. At the same time, Qatar does not agree with the desire of Germany, as well as the entire European Union, to be able to ferry received liquefied gas to other countries.

Germany annually consumes about 100 billion cubic meters of natural gas. Approximately 55 percent of this volume comes from Russia, the rest – from the Netherlands, Norway and a number of other countries. Germany supported the construction of two terminals to receive LNG and has leased four floating storage facilities and regasification tanks.
