LONDON, Oct 5 (Reuters) – QatarEnergy CEO and state minister for energy Saad al-Kaabi said on Wednesday that his company will become the world’s largest trader of liquefied natural gas (LNG) over the next 5-10 years.

“We are trading about 5-10 million (tonnes of LNG) now. We will be, in the next 5-10 years, the largest LNG trader in the world by far. This is ours and third-party (volumes),” Kaabi told the Energy Intelligence Forum in London.

“We started about two years ago (with trading)… I would say that the profitability of that venture is probably 20 times what I thought it could be.”
