Dolphin Energy has reached a major gas production milestone of 6tn standard cubic feet (scf), since the company started operations in 2007.
The Dolphin Gas Project achieved full throughput in February 2008 and since then Dolphin Energy has been delivering 2bn scf of natural gas a day to the UAE and Oman.  It is meeting 30% of the UAE’s energy requirements and delivering significant volumes of natural gas to each of the country’s seven emirates. 
Dolphin Energy’s major strategic initiative, the Dolphin Gas Project, involves the production and processing of natural gas from Qatar’s North Field, and transportation of the dry gas by sub-sea export pipeline from Qatar to the UAE, which began in July 2007.
On the achievement, Dolphin Energy chief executive officer Adel Ahmed Albuainain said, “This milestone is significant because it demonstrates the important role Dolphin Energy continues to play in sustaining energy security in both countries, driving industrial growth and economic development as well as supporting the transition to a low carbon future. To have met this cumulative production total is a source of enormous pride.”
The 6tn scf production total was achieved in spite of a challenging year when three new export gas compressors were commissioned at Dolphin Energy’s upstream facilities to support the six compressors that are already in operation.  “This was a huge undertaking from an operational, technical and safety perspective. Installation of the three new compressors has helped enhance availability and reliability of natural gas supplies for the southern Gulf,” Albuainain continued.
In addition, the company is on course to register at the end of February 100% plant availability for the seventh consecutive year.
Dolphin Energy general manager (Qatar) Hassan al-Emadi said, “We have a strong track record in maintaining plant availability because of our commitment to the highest levels of HSE, asset performance and integrity. 
Strong communication, teamwork and utilising the skills and experience of our employees and contractors are also essential factors as is a commitment to continuous improvement. We will continue to make every effort to ensure gas supply to our customers.”
