QATAR SHIPS LNG TO UAE AFTER DOLPHIN PIPELINE OUTAGE.
Dolphin, a major gas pipeline from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates, experienced an outage for several days last month and Qatar filled the gap with additional liquefied gas supplies, according to a report from Reuters.
Dolphin supplies 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from Qatar's North Field to customers in the UAE.
The project is owned by Dolphin Energy Limited, which in turn is owned by the UAE's Mubadala with 51%, Total with 24.5% and Occidental with 24.5%.
The pipeline encountered a major failure in Qatar's territory in mid-April resulting in a shutdown of all of its facilities for several days which resulted in significant curtailment of gas supplies to the UAE.
Qatar Petroleum helped Dolphin by shipping repair materials.
It also backed up gas supplies by shipping LNG to the UAE.
A shutdown of the 364 km Dolphin pipeline, which links Qatar's giant North Field with the UAE and Oman, would cause major disruptions to the UAE's energy needs.
