Excellent analysis. Building Barakah means the UAE will waste much less natural gas on bulk heating for power generation and will have more available to sell to overseas customers for high value added products such as petrochemicals, heating, transportation fuel, and a host of chemical applications. Used as electric generating fuel, more UAE natural gas will reduce coal consumption in a host of countries, particularly in Asia.

It should also be noted that the first unit at Barakah was completed before the operating crew had finished their training and certification. This serves as an example of how nuclear projects can be completed to a predictable time and budget.
