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.
Dolphin Energy will be a leading and reliable supplier of clean energy in a socially responsible manner. Dolphin Energy will support the development of substantial long term new industries throughout the region, creating sustainable wealth, economic growth and employment opportunities for the citizens of the region, far into the future.
The Dolphin Gas Project of Dolphin Energy Limited is a strategic energy initiative whose mission is to produce, process and supply substantial quantities of natural gas from offshore Qatar to the United Arab Emirates and Oman over 25 years.
