A unique aspect of the Dolphin Gas Project is that Dolphin Energy is involved in the three key stages of the production chain - upstream, midstream and downstream.
Dolphin Energy was established by the Abu Dhabi Government.
In December, the 182-kilometer Al Ain-Fujairah Gas Pipeline was completed.
In July, the Dolphin Gas Project began production in Qatar and transportation to UAE and Oman.
In December, the 244-kilometer Taweelah-Fujairah Pipeline was finalized.
January – Dolphin Energy reaches 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent of cumulative gross production.
Dolphin Energy reaches the 5 trillion cubic feet production milestone since operations began in 2007.
The EGC Upgrade Project is completed and three new gas compressors complement the six already in operation.
In 1999, the government of Abu Dhabi established Dolphin Energy Limited to implement the Dolphin Gas Project. This unique strategic energy initiative began gas production in July 2007. The Project involves production and processing of natural gas from Qatar's offshore North Field and transportation of the processed gas by subsea pipeline to the UAE and Oman.
In addition, the company undertook other important energy-related developments such as the Al Ain – Fujairah Gas Pipeline. This 182-kilometer pipeline was completed in December 2003 and commissioned in January 2004. This created the first ever cross-border refined natural gas transmission in the history of the GCC.
Then in December 2010, Dolphin Energy finalized the 244-kilometer Taweelah – Fujairah Pipeline. Today, it is transporting vital gas supply to the eastern region of the UAE.
The overall investment in wells, sea lines, processing plant, export pipeline, receiving facilities and distribution network has made this one of the largest energy-related ventures ever undertaken in the Middle East.
Dolphin Energy’s overall objective is to create long-term economic wealth and new business opportunities for GCC citizens far into the future.
