Dolphin Energy Limited of Abu Dhabi, UAE began gas production in July 2007. This unique strategic energy initiative involves the production and processing of natural gas from Qatar’s North Field, and transportation of the refined gas by subsea pipeline across joint UAE-Qatari waters to the UAE.
The overall investment in constructing the entire Dolphin Gas Project – wells, sealines, processing plant, export pipeline and receiving facilities – has made it one of the largest energy-related ventures ever undertaken in the Middle East.
Dolphin Energy is a development company that was established in Abu Dhabi to implement the Dolphin Gas Project, and to undertake other important energy-related developments such as the Al Ain - Fujairah Gas Pipeline. This was completed in December 2003 and commissioned in January 2004, creating the first ever cross-border refined natural gas transmission in the history of the GCC.
In addition, the company is currently in the process of finalizing the 244 kilometer Taweelah – Fujairah Pipeline project. Although not slated for completion until the end of 2010, the pipeline is already transporting vital gas supply to the eastern region of the UAE.
Dolphin Energy’s overall objective is to create long-term economic wealth and new business opportunities for GCC citizens, far into the future.
