Dolphin Energy plans maintenance program


Dolphin Energy Ltd has announced plans for a maintenance program at its onshore and offshore facilities which will take place in February 2011.

It will include extensive work to inspect Trains 1 and 2 of the Stream 2 facilities which are located in the company's gas processing plant at Ras Laffan, Qatar. In turn, this will allow work to take place on one of Dolphin's offshore platforms. The maintenance program will take place from the first to February 28th and at a time of low consumer demand, said the company.

It added that works are normally coordinated with Dolphin Energy's customers to ensure minimal disruption. Gas supply to customers for this period is expected to drop by half, from two billion cf of natural gas per day to one billion cf of natural gas per day.

Dolphin Energy has implemented partial shutdowns of the plant in both 2009 and 2010. The company has said they are a regular feature of the energy industry worldwide and are undertaken to ensure the highest standards of safety, maintenance and environmental protection.

Dolphin Energy's major strategic initiative, the Dolphin 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.
