The total investment in the project is estimated at some Uss 8-10 billion. The cost of the first phase of the project is estimated at s3.5 billion(S2 billion for the upstream facilities, and si.5 billion for the gas line and terminals in Abu Dhabi and Dubai).
At the end of 2003, Qatar Petroleum and DEL finalized the Dolphin Project’s field development plan in accordance with a 25- ear development and production-sharing agreement reached in December 2001. When the development plan has been completed(due in 2007), DEL will produce natural gas from the North Field and process it in an offshore plant at Ras Laffan(in Qatar) where condensate and NGL will be extracted.
A current priority is to develop non-associated gas production from both onshore and offshore structures
Onshore, plans have been made to increase the output of associated and non-associated gas from the Bab and Asab fields through two major gas development projects(AGD-2 and AGD-3) , which are intended to boost gas production by around 2 billion cfpd in 2007, while offshore gas production has been increased by the development of the Khuff gas structure discovered under the Abu Al-Bukhoosh oil field, 45 km northeast of Das Island.
The growing importance of gas as a source of energy
The growing importance of gas as a source of energy, natural gas production and processing facilities continue rapidly in Abu Dhabi. The emirate already possesses one of the world’s largest non-associated gas reservoirs in the Khuff formation b the Umm Shaif oil field.
