UAE - The Dubai Gas Processing Plant.
The gas feedstock comes from the Margham field, which in April 1989 began supplying the plant by a 45-km, 16-inch pipeline to replace a major part of associated gas which used to be provided by Conoco from its offshore oilfields. A second 300 MCF/d line, with a 24-inch pipe on stream in June 1992, raised the capacity of the Margham-Jebel Ali system to 450 MCF/d. After Dugas and DEWA started receiving gas from Mubarak in early 1993, Conoco stopped supplying associated gas to Dugas and began using all of it for reinjection. (The associated gas used to come from Fateh, South-West Fateh and Rashid oilfields through a subsea pipeline running to Jebel Ali. Under the 1974 JV deal between Dubai and Sunningdale Oils, the Canadian firm used to take the gas produced by Conoco over a 15-year period. Conoco was able to recover all the associated gas by the early 1980s after having installed more compression platforms at the fields).
