Dolphin maintenance to hit supply
Abu Dhabi, February 10, 2010
Dolphin Energy Limited today announced that it will undertake a routine maintenance and inspection program for the Train 2 facilities at its gas processing plant in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
The program, which will take place from February 26 to March 8, has been coordinated with Dolphin Energy’s customers to ensure minimal disruption, said a statement.
Gas supply to customers during this period is expected to be reduced by a quarter to 1.5 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day (scf/day) compared to the regular daily production of 2 billion scf/day, it said.
Dolphin Energy implemented a similar partial shutdown in 2009 when part of its processing and production facilities underwent inspection over a five-week period.
“Routine maintenance shutdowns of this type are a regular feature of the energy industry worldwide. This temporary shutdown is being undertaken to ensure that the highest standards of safety, maintenance and environmental protection continue to be followed in all areas of the company’s business,” the company said. – TradeArabia News Service
