The article focuses on Qatar's efforts to revitalize its upstream oil industry. It states the three oil fields operated by the state-owned Qatar Petroleum (QP) have experienced declines in production, resulting in the company reducing production while making investments that would allow the assets to plateau for a longer period. It speculates the price of oil may be an important factor in whether QP continues to redevelop its Bul Hanine offshore oil field.
