Oman to receive flow of gas from Dolphin pipes

Oman should receive natural gas through the Dolphin Energy pipeline from Qatar by the first quarter of next year, said oil minister Mohammad bin Hamad al-Rumhy.

Oman should receive natural gas through the Dolphin Energy pipeline from Qatar by the first quarter of next year, said oil minister Mohammad bin Hamad al-Rumhy.

"We are waiting for the Dolphin project," he said at an oil conference in Riyadh. "I think they have a delay of a few months."

Dolphin Energy said it was on track for the full commercial launch of gas imports from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates in the first week of June. Company officials say the project will extend further south to Oman.

The pipeline, which is already carrying 400 million cubic feet per day to Dubai, is the first cross-border gas line in the Gulf region.
