DOLPHIN MEETS 30% OF UAE ENERGY DEMANDS
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.”
