     The global market is far more competitive these days, and 2014 saw a dramatic decline in oil prices, which continued into 2015. In March 2015 Brent Crude was retailing at $57 per barrel. Behind this is a global oversupply – Bloomberg reported that the UAE and Qatar estimated this to be in the region of 2m barrels per day (bpd) in mid-January 2015. This is primarily the result of surging US output, which was at a three-decade high. However, this output seems likely to taper off, as falling prices make some of the fracking on which US production is based no longer economically feasible. Furthermore, in 2014 Washington decided to allow exports of condensates for the first time – oil exports having been banned since the 1970s oil crisis. Thus, the global condensates market is also seeing a major supply surge, with press reports suggesting that the US could add up to 1m bpd of these light oils to the export market during the next 10 years. This is particularly relevant to Qatar, as condensates have come to represent a larger proportion of the state’s output than crude.
