DOLPHIN MEETS 30% OF UAE EN­ERGY DE­MANDS

Qatar Today - - BUSINESS -

Dolphin En­ergy has reached a ma­jor gas pro­duc­tion mile­stone of 6 tril­lion stan­dard cu­bic feet since the com­pany started op­er­a­tions in 2007.

The Dolphin Gas Project achieved full through­put in Fe­bru­ary 2008 and since then Dolphin En­ergy has been de­liv­er­ing 2 bil­lion stan­dard cu­bic feet of nat­u­ral gas a day to the UAE and Oman. It is meet­ing 30% of the UAE's en­ergy re­quire­ments and de­liv­er­ing sig­nif­i­cant vol­umes of nat­u­ral gas to each of the coun­try's seven emi­rates. Dolphin En­ergy's ma­jor strate­gic ini­tia­tive, the Dolphin Gas Project, in­volves the pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing of nat­u­ral gas from Qatar's North Field, and trans­porta­tion of the dry gas by sub­sea ex­port pipe­line from Qatar to the UAE, which be­gan in July 2007. On the achieve­ment, Dolphin En­ergy chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Adel Ahmed Al­buainain said, “This mile­stone is sig­nif­i­cant be­cause it demon­strates the im­por­tant role Dolphin En­ergy con­tin­ues to play in sus­tain­ing en­ergy se­cu­rity in both coun­tries, driv­ing in­dus­trial growth and eco­nomic devel­op­ment as well as sup­port­ing the tran­si­tion to a low-car­bon fu­ture. To have met this cu­mu­la­tive pro­duc­tion to­tal is a source of enor­mous pride.”
