BMI View: New power plants, desalination plants and reservoirs have all entered operation over the past few years, however, between now and the FIFA 2022 World Cup, billions of dollars of investment is still to be invested into boosting Qatar's water infrastructure. However, with a limited number of major projects in the pipeline, we highlight that over the longer term growth will moderate.

Qatar is one of the largest per capita water consumers in the world, with consumption levels quadruple that of the average European consumer. In order to cater to the vast consumption levels and limited freshwater reserves, the country is focusing on a massive reservoir-development project. At present five reservoirs are under construction or in the tendering process and more are in the pipeline. Desalination facilities and wastewater treatment projects are also seeing extensive investment under the auspices of various Ashghal development programmes and we expect this tripartite programme designed to boost the country's water availability will continue, offering numerous opportunities to water infrastructure companies. There are plans to make investments worth USD22bn in its power and water infrastructure up to 2020, according to the Qatar Electricity & Water Company (Kahramaa). Qatar has budgeted for USD4.1bn to be spent up to 2015 on electricity and water projects.
