Dolphin Energy issues tender for gas plant contract


Dolphin Energy has issued a tender for an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to upgrade compression facilities at its gas plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar

The Abu Dhabi-based company confirmed that a number of firms had responded to the invitation and that a few had already been shortlisted. The EPC tender follows Dolphin's successful US$1.3 billion bond issue.

"The move will help ensure the continuous supply of natural gas to the United Arab Emirates and Oman by increasing the overall reliability and availability of Dolphin's gas compression facilities," the company said in a statement.

Dolphin Energy has already awarded a contract to Rolls Royce Dresser to supply three new gas compressors with gas turbine drivers.

The company denied media reports that it would increase throughput to 3 billion scf/day in 2015, claiming that "such reports were entirely incorrect".

Dolphin Energy is a joint venture that transports gas from Qatar's offshore North Field via a subsea pipeline to the UAE and Oman.
