Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a critical source of energy at the global level. Its potential, opportunities, challenges, and prospects vary greatly from a regional and national perspective and could evolve on the short or medium term. This paper analyses the LNG sector in Qatar and in sub-Saharan Africa within a global perspective to highlight openings and advantages for Qatar. It emphasizes that, under precise conditions, LNG is a promising domain in number of African countries, especially those who are gas producers. Qatar could benefit from LNG investment and skill transfer in Africa, using the sector as an entry point for strategic partnerships with African stakeholders and countries, showing encouraging promises. Qatar could take the lead among Gulf countries and contribute to support socio-economic development in Africa, with consequent direct and indirect benefits for its geopolitical role in the Arabic world and beyond.
