Dolphin achieves 2b scfd daily production target
(Staff Report) KHALEEJ TIMES 12 February 2008

ABU DHABI — Dolphin Energy Limited has achieved its target daily production rate of 2 billion standard cubic feet of gas a day (scfd), the equivalent in energy terms of over 350,000 barrels of oil equivalent.

Dolphin’s initial supplies of processed natural gas from Qatar to UAE began to flow in July 2007. Since then, Dolphin Energy has been transporting gas through the company’s export pipeline in ever increasing quantities. Production has gradually been ramped up as

all elements of the company’s complex gas processing plant at Qatar’s Ras Laffan have been tested and commissioned.

The gas is produced from Dolphin’s 24 production wells offshore Qatar. It is then processed at Ras Laffan Gas Project Plant and the natural gas compressed and flowed through the 48 inch, 364 kilometre subsea export pipeline — the longest and largest in the Middle East.

Dolphin’s CEO, Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, said that Dolphin has been able to achieve its agreed maximum daily production rate under its agreement with Qatar, whose support for this project has been essential to its success.

He added that next target is to meet daily target consistently, and the company will shortly be able to fulfill its gas sales agreement to supply Oman. Dolphin Energy has contracted to supply Oman with up to 200 million scf/day of gas in the second half of 2008. It is the culmination of a vision started nine-years ago by Qatar, the UAE and Oman.
