Dolphin’s subsea pipeline project to UAE and Oman big success

The General Manager of Dolphin Energy Qatar has described the company’s subsea pipeline project that stretches from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates and into Oman as a huge success.
Adel Ahmed Albuainain told Oxford Business Group, a global publishing, research and consultancy firm, that Dolphin Energy Limited’s Dolphin Gas Project achieved its full production and supply rate of two billion standard cubic feet of processed methane gas in February 2008. This, he said, equated in energy terms to approximately 330,000 barrels of oil daily.
Currently there are no plans for expansion and any future requirement is subject to a decision by the Qatari government. “We have a certain allotment to work with from Qatar Petroleum to meet the demands that we already have,” Albuainain said. Dolphin Energy is currently delivering natural gas to customers throughout the UAE and in Oman where it is mainly used for power generation.
When the first supplies of gas left Qatar for Abu Dhabi in July 2007, Dolphin’s pipeline was seen as an essential and strategic project for GCC energy sharing. The overall investment in wells, sealines, the processing plant, export pipeline and receiving facilities has made it one of the largest energy-related ventures undertaken in the region.
The energy company is expanding its condensate storage facilities which is planned to be completed by the end of 2010. When finished, this will meet the current requirements of Dolphin Energy as well as the future Pearl GTL and Barzan projects.
