Dolphin: No Complaints about Pipeline Construction
Abu Dhabi-based Dolphin Energy said that it has received no objection or protest from any state regarding the construction of the pipeline that passes exclusively within the maritime zones of the U.A.E. and Qatar.
Dolphin said that it is not the company’s policy to comment on correspondence between other entities.
In 2004, Dolphin received the necessary approvals from the U.A.E. and Qatar authorities to construct the pipeline, which will be completed within the next few weeks. The completion of this pipeline will facilitate the transportation of gas from Ras Laffan in Qatar to Taweelah in U.A.E.
Dolphin Energy Limited was created to develop substantial energy projects throughout the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Its objective is to create long-term economic wealth and new business opportunities for GCC citizens.
Dolphin Energy’s major strategic initiative, the Dolphin Project, involves the production and processing of natural gas from Qatar’s North Field, and transportation of the dry gas by sub-sea pipeline across joint U.A.E.-Qatari waters to the U.A.E., beginning in 2006.
Dolphin’s first initiative, the Al Ain to Fujairah Pipeline, came onstream in January 2004.The pipeline supplies the Fujairah Water and Power Plant on the U.A.E.’s East Coast--initially with natural gas from Oman and subsequently with Dolphin gas from Qatar. In May 2005, Dolphin began to supply natural gas to the U.A.E. Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. The gas is being delivered via a tie-in near Qidfa between Dolphin’s Al Ain-Fujairah pipeline and the existing Emarat gas pipeline network.
Dolphin Energy is owned 51 percent by Mubadala Development Co., on behalf of the Government of Abu Dhabi, and 24.5 percent each by Total of France and Occidental Petroleum of the U.S.
