Dolphin Energy has completed construction on the 244 km Taweelah – Fujairah Pipeline (TFP), which connects the south and north coasts of the United Arab Emirates.
Built by Russian firm Stroytransgaz, the 48 inch diameter TFP connects the receiving terminal at Taweelah in Abu Dhabi, on the Persian Gulf coast, to the receiving station of the treatment facility in Fujairah, in the Emirate of Fujairah, on the Gulf of Oman coast.
The project is designed to provide 1.6 Bcf/d of gas that will meet the current and future needs of the Department for Water Resources and Energy in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (ADWEC), including the future power plant and desalination plant at Qidfa and will deliver essential volumes of natural gas to Fujairah where ADWEC has built two power stations to support industrial growth and development.
Stroytransgaz commenced work on the pipeline 2008 including basic and detailed design and engineering, procurement of equipment and materials. The company also completed the construction and assembly work, starting-up and commissioning of the pipeline.
The scope of the project covers construction of the linear part, two scraper launcher and receiver units, nine line valve stations and a gas metering station as well as installation of SCADA, gas leakage detection, and telecommunication systems.
