Abstract

A tiny peninsula off of the Arabian Peninsula, Qatar has become one of the major
global producers and exporters of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The wealth produced
by Qatar’s oil and gas exports has generated a construction boom in its capital, Doha,
and the surrounding area. This resulted in significant growth at all levels, from urban
development and infrastructure provision to cultural and educational facilities.
