Oil minister fears 'many projects' will be impacted as oil price loses $100.
If the oil price stays under $70 many energy projects to boost future capacity will be delayed, Qatar's oil minister Abdullah al-Attiyah said on Wednesday.
"My concern is that the oil price will go lower," Attiyah said at a petrochemical conference in Dubai. "And many projects will be delayed."
