Executive Summary
The global economy continued to be volatile in the third quarter,
particularly with respect to commodity prices. Both Brent and WTI crude
oil saw softening compared with the same period last year and North
American natural gas prices were 40% lower, though some improvement has
been seen post period.

TAQA's nine month results demonstrated the resilience of its global
portfolio with a strong performance from Power & Water helping to ease
the effect of weaker commodity prices - particularly in North America.

Power & Water delivered a solid operational performance, with forced
outage rates at Shuweihat 2 and Jorf Lasfar, in particular, well below
best in class worldwide standards.

Oil & Gas had mixed results, with a solid performance from the UK and
Dutch entities, although North America continued to show weak results.
