Dolphin Energy to supply natural gas to Oman in Q3
Abu Dhabi-based Dolphin Energy will begin supplying natural gas to Oman in Q3 2009, a few months later than planned. Oman has yet to complete the infrastructure.
It is understood that there is an issue with the gas compression on Oman’s side of the pipeline.
The Dolphin project linking Qatar’s giant North Field with the UAE and Oman was the first cross-border gas project in the Gulf Arab region. It has pumped around two billion cubic feet a day of gas from Qatar to the UAE since February.
Dolphin is still working on gas metreing stations in the UAE. The final cost of the entire Dolphin project was around $4.8 billion. The 364 km pipeline was completed in 2006.
