Qatar: Dolphin Energy
Cergy (France), February 15th, 2016 - SPIE Oil & Gas Services announced today that its subsidiary SPIE Oil & Gas Services Middle East LLC has secured two four-year service agreements with Dolphin Energy Limited in the State of Qatar. Both agreements contain an option to extend services for an additional year.
SPIE Oil & Gas Services was awarded a contract to provide routine, predictive, preventive, overhaul maintenance and emergency repair services as well as operation services for Dolphin Energy Limited’s onshore facilities located in Ras Laffan Industrial City in Qatar. The work will cover buildings and fence and street lighting systems.
Through a second agreement, SPIE Oil & Gas Services will provide the same services for Dolphin Energy Limited’s Ras Laffan onshore facilities and for two offshore facilities. This agreement focuses on the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) and refrigeration systems, including window and split-type air conditioners.
Twenty five SPIE Oil & Gas Services employees will be dedicated to the two contracts, which fall within the scope of Dolphin Energy Limited’s Dolphin Gas Project – a strategic cross-border energy initiative which produces processes and supplies substantial quantities of natural gas from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
“We are proud to be involved in the ambitious Dolphin Gas Project,” says Yves Compañy, Managing Director of SPIE Oil & Gas Services. “These two contracts demonstrate SPIE Oil & Gas Services’ strength when it comes to providing value-added maintenance services both onshore and offshore.”
