Report: Dolphin pipeline running as normal despite political tension

The Dolphin subsea pipeline shipping Qatari gas to the UAE is functioning without interruptions, despite the UAE and some other Arab nations severing their diplomatic ties with Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates have cut their diplomatic ties with Qatar, citing the latter’s support of terrorist organizations.

In a statement on Monday, the Saudis accused Qatar of supporting „various terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at destabilizing the region including the Muslim Brotherhood Group, Daesh (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda.”

However, according to Reuters, which cited unnamed sources, the offshore pipeline running from Qatar’s Ras Laffan to Taweelah in the UAE is functioning uninterrupted, despite the political tensions in the region.

According to the operator Dolphin Energy, the 364-kilometer pipeline is the largest and longest gas pipeline in the Middle East. Its maximum depth underwater is 50-meters. The Export Pipeline transports 2 billion standard cubic feet a per day (scf/day) of refined methane gas from Qatar. Its design capacity is 3.2 billion scf/day.
