U.A.E. Gulps Qatari Gas to Keep Dubai's Lights on Despite Spat - Bloomberg

U.A.E. Gulps Qatari Gas to Keep Dubai's Lights on Despite Spat - Bloomberg:

"When it comes to natural gas shipments, the United Arab Emirates needs Qatar more than Qatar needs the U.A.E.

The U.A.E. joined Saudi Arabia in cutting off air, sea and land links with Qatar on Monday, accusing the gas-rich sheikhdom of supporting extremist groups. But the U.A.E., which depends on imported gas to generate half its electricity, avoided shutting down the pipeline supplying it from Qatar, which has the world’s third-largest gas deposits. Without this energy artery, Dubai’s glittering skyscrapers would go dark for lack of power unless the emirate could replace Qatari fuel with more expensive liquefied natural gas. "
