Sharjah: Dolphin Energy Limited announced on Sunday that the company has been supplying Sharjah with gas for the first time from April 18.

The gas is being delivered to the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA), on an interruptible basis, via Dolphin's new pipeline connection to Dubai.

Dolphin already supplies gas directly to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.

Through existing supply arrangements to the Federal Electricity & Water Authority (FEWA), and SEWA, the company now supplies all UAE Emirates with its natural gas.

Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, Dolphin Energy's CEO, said: “Dolphin is happy that it can supply gas to Sharjah to meet the Emirate's growing energy needs. Dolphin gas is currently helping all of the UAE's emirates to meet power demand, and we shall assist wherever we can in future.''

The company reached its daily maximum throughput target of 2 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day in February, when its Gas Processing Plant in Qatar achieved this production figure and the gas was compressed and delivered through the Dolphin Qatar-UAE Export Pipeline.
