US Nursing: Qatar

Without doubt a nurse will find that oil based products, primarily petrol are the key drivers of Qatar’s economy. There are proven oil reserves of 15 billion barrels which should ensure continued output at current levels for 23 years. Qatar has a per capita GDP that ranks among the highest in the world because of oil. Qatar’s proved reserves of natural gas are more than 5% of the world total and the third largest in the world. Production and export of natural gas are becoming increasingly important. Long-term goals feature the development of off-shore petroleum and the diversification of the economy.
