Dolphin Energy announced the award of a substantial $212 million contract to double the capacity of Qatar’s low sulfur condensate storage facilities. This Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract is for the expansion of the Common Low Sulfur Condensate Tank Farm at Ras Laffan Industrial City in northern Qatar. It provides for development of the tank farm’s storage capacity from 1.5 million to 3.32 million barrels, plus additional export loading facilities.

The EPC contract has been awarded to Qatar Engineering and Construction Company (Qcon) at a cost of QR 765 million (approximately $212 million). Five companies had earlier been invited to bid for the project, and three eventually did so.

Dolphin Energy is now producing more than 1 billion standard cubic feet of gas daily (scf/day) offshore Qatar for processing at Ras Laffan and subsequent transport by pipeline to the UAE.

Dolphin is additionally the designated Operator of the Common Low Sulfur Condensate Tank Farm, under a Joint Venture Agreement between Qatar Petroleum ( on behalf of the Barzan Gas Project), Qatar Shell GTL (on behalf of the Pearl Gas To Liquids Project) and Dolphin Energy itself.

The existing Dolphin tank farm includes three 500,000 barrel tanks, together with an export loading dock. With the planned Pearl GTL and Barzan projects, there is a requirement for additional capacity consisting of one 500,000 barrel and two 660,000 barrel tanks, plus additional export loading facilities. The scope of work for the Qcon EPC expansion contract includes engineering, procurement, provision of transportation, fabrication, construction, installation, testing, pre-commissioning and commissioning services.
