Dolphin Energy


Helping to meet growing energy needs by supplying the United Arab Emirates and Oman with gas from Qatar’s giant offshore North Field, the US$5.8 billion Dolphin Gas Project is a strategic asset of the UAE and so sits at the very heart of Mubadala and Mubadala Petroleum. When the first gas began flowing through the Dolphin pipeline across the Arabian Gulf in July 2007, it marked a hugely significant moment: the fruits of the first cross-border natural gas network between Gulf Cooperation Council countries and one of the largest energy investments to be undertaken in the Gulf region. Just six months later, two billion standard cubic feet per day was being delivered through the network.

Through Dolphin Energy, and in co-operation with our partners, we will continue to manage the operation of this strategic project, to ensure it delivers essential gas safely, cost-effectively and securely. Mubadala is the majority owner of Abu Dhabi-based Dolphin Energy, with a 51 percent shareholding. The remaining 49 percent is held equally between Total of France and Occidental Petroleum Corporation of the United States.

Production & Development

Mubadala Petroleum and its partners – Occidental Petroleum and Bahrain Government’s NOGAHOLDING – are engaged in a leading-edge effort to revitalize production from the highly complex 80-year old Bahrain field, which was the first oil field to be developed on the Arabian side of the Gulf.

Mubadala Petroleum and our partners were awarded a Development and Production Sharing Agreement (DPSA) by the Bahrain Government in April 2009, and began an intensive program to redevelop this mature field with the aims of raising oil output and increasing Bahrain’s gas supply.

The partners set up Tatweer Petroleum to serve as operator for the project. Since Tatweer Petroleum began operations in Bahrain field, the partners have made substantial investments in new wells and new facilities. More than 193 wells were drilled in 2013 by three modern and highly mobile rigs, bringing the total number of new wells to 645 since inception in 2010.

A drilling fleet of six work over units is maintaining and rehabilitating the stock of 1004 wells. Existing facilities for oil production, gas handling, and water handling have been refurbished, and additional facilities have been constructed. As a result, oil production reached over 43,300 bopd by the end of 2013, up from 26,100 bopd when Tatweer Petroleum commenced operations.

The partners are currently engaged in an aggressive program to evaluate new technologies which could increase recovery from the mature reservoirs in the field and allow development of previously untapped resources such as tight reservoirs, heavy oil, and tar. Nine pilots are in progress, including thermal pilots in both light and heavy oil reservoirs and water and gas injection trials in multiple horizons.

At the same time, the partners have expanded production capacity from Bahrain field’s giant deep gas reservoirs, which are key to meeting the energy needs of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Production capacity has been increased to 2.3 BCF/D, up from 1.6 BCF/D in 2010, through drilling new wells and upgrading surface infrastructure.


Production – Development – Exploration

Block 53 - Mukhaizna

The Block 53 Concession Area covers 694 square kilometers on onshore Oman and contains the giant Mukhaizna heavy oil field. Mubadala Petroleum participates in Block 53 through its affiliate Liwa Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mubadala that holds a 15% participating interest in the Mukhaizna thermal EOR project. The project began in July 2005 with the ratification by Royal Decree of the Block 53 Production Sharing Agreement.

In consultation with Oman’s Ministry of Oil & Gas, we have worked as a partner (together with Oman Oil Company E&P, Shell Exploration & Production Oman Ltd, Total E&P Oman, Partex (Oman) Corporation and Occidental Mukhaizna LLC, the designated operator of the field), to design and implement the large-scale Mukhaizna steam flood project, the largest in the region.

The Mukhaizna EOR project has flooded the Mukhaizna field with steam in order to improve reservoir output. By the end of 2013, Mukhaizna was producing over 120,000 bopd; an increase of over 110,000 bopd since the partnership took over development of the field. Initiated in early 2007, thermal recovery operations have been implemented on more than 500 thermal patterns.

Mukhaizna currently has an oil treating capacity of more than 150,000 bopd and steam injection capacity of greater than 500,000 barrels of steam per day (bspd). Further engineering, design, and construction activities will increase steam generation capacity to in excess of 600,000 bspd by the end of 2014.

Block 62 – Habiba

Mubadala Petroleum’s most recent project in the Sultanate of Oman is the Habiba Block 62, which covers an area of 2,200 square kilometers in North Oman. The Exploration and Production Sharing Agreements covering the Block were signed with the country’s Ministry of Oil & Gas by Sixteenth Investment Company LLC, another affiliate of Mubadala Petroleum, Oman Oil Company E&P and Occidental Oman Gas Company.

Habiba Block 62 is unique in that it involves multiple projects, including the development of the Maradi Huraymah gas field, appraisal of three other gas discoveries, and both shallow and deep exploration potential. Mubadala Petroleum owns a 32% interest in this block.



Mubadala Petroleum, through its affiliate Liwa Energy, holds a 20 percent working interest in Block 103 onshore Libya. Liwa Energy has partnered with the operator of the block, Oxy Libya LLC, on a five-year contract which was awarded in June 2008.



Block 7, offshore Tanzania, is located in an exciting new province that holds great potential and represents Mubadala Petroleum’s first entry into sub-Saharan Africa.

We hold a 20 percent interest in the deepwater block, where depths range from 500 to 3,000 meters, and work in partnership with operator Ophir, who holds the remaining 80 percent of the block. Following a large 3D seismic survey acquired in late 2010, and additional 2D seismic acquired in 2011, our exploration program is ongoing.

Block 7 typifies our intention to seek new, high impact exploration opportunities within the eastern hemisphere.



The Caspian Sea region holds many opportunities, both on and offshore. Our entry to this area took place in June 2009, when we signed a contract with our partners covering the joint exploration of the Nursultan Block (N Block). Located 30 kilometers south-south-west offshore of Aktau, Kazakhstan, N Block covers an area of approximately 8,100 square kilometers.

Our interest of 24.5 percent in N Block is matched by N Block B.V., the entity wholly affiliated to the Kazakhstan National Oil Company, while the majority partner KazMunayGaz (KMG), holds the remaining 51 percent interest. The project is run by a joint operating company, N Operating Company.

The first N Block exploration well was drilled in 2010, encountering hydrocarbons at several levels. Further exploration and appraisal is ongoing and the second exploration well was completed in 2012.

With a presence in Thailand since 2004, we operate five concessions including the very successful Jasmine B5/27 offshore development in the Gulf of Thailand. We also have interests in three non-operated concessions. Our contribution to the Thai economy since commencing operations has been significant, with total expenditures up to the end of 2013 in excess of US$2.0 billion, and taxes and royalty payments of more than US$1.1 billion.

As a long-term investor in Thailand, we are fully committed not only to the development of the local energy industry, but also to acting responsibly, with the utmost respect to the environment and communities we are operating in. We are engaged in various CSR activities focusing on education,
the environment and supporting the local communities.

Production: The success of Jasmine B5/27

In March 2005, just 13 months after concession acquisition, the first Jasmine platform, WPA, was installed and first oil was produced in June. Today, six platforms and one Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit are in operation. Ban Yen produced first oil in 2008. In November
2013 the production milestone of 50 million barrels was reached; a substantial increase from the estimate made at the time of purchase in 2004.
In 2013, production output was 13,500 bopd and all production is sold for local use to meet Thailand’s growing energy needs.

Development: Operation of the Manora and Nong Yao fields

Mubadala Petroleum holds a 60 percent interest in, and operates, the G1/48 concession, located in the Northern Gulf of Thailand. This block contains the Manora field, which is about 80 kilometers offshore and sits beneath 44 meters of water.

The Manora field development was sanctioned in July 2012. The field was discovered in 2009 and the
development concept was selected in late 2011. The facilities will include a Wellhead Processing Platform with water injection facilities to maximize oil recovery with oil stored in a Floating
Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessel.

Production is expected to commence in Q3 2014, reaching a peak rate of approximately 15,000 bopd from ten production wells and five injection wells in the main reservoir sequence. Mubadala Petroleum holds a 75 percent interest and operates the G11/48 concession is the southern Gulf of Thailand where the Nong Yao field is located. The field is approximately 165 kilometers offshore in water
depth of about 75 meters.

The Nong Yao field was discovered in 2009 and its development was sanctioned in August 2013. The
development comprises Wellhead Processing Platform and a minimum facility Wellhead Platform with crude export via a FSO vessel. The initial development phase will consist of 23 development wells targeting the primary reservoirs. It is planned to commence production in the first half of 2015 and peak rates are expected to reach approximately 10,000 bopd within a few months of first oil.


Mubadala Petroleum continues an active exploration program for all its blocks in Thailand. A two year drilling program in the Gulf of Thailand commenced in mid-2013, comprising Jasmine exploitation and new field development as well as exploration drilling.

Production and Exploration

Present in Indonesia since 2003, we are the operator of three blocks covered by the Sebuku, West Sebuku and Kerapu Production Sharing Contracts. The Sebuku PSC contains the Ruby gas field which started production in October 2013. Mubadala Petroleum is exploring further growth opportunities in high-impact offshore areas.

Production: Ruby Gas Field

The Ruby gas field is located in the Makassar Straits, between the islands of Kalimantan and Sulawesi, and supplies gas for the domestic gas market. Mubadala Petroleum, operates and has a 70 percent interest in the Sebuku block that covers the field.

In June 2011, the development of the Ruby gas field was sanctioned. Just 28 months later first gas was produced. Together with our partners Total E&P Sebuku and INPEX South Makassar Ltd (each with 15 percent interest) we invested approximately US$500 million in building the project’s facilities.

First gas from Ruby followed a safe and successful hook-up and commissioning phase and parallel operations to drill Ruby’s four production wells. All offshore platform facilities were constructed in Indonesian fabrication yards between September 2011 and March 2013. A 312 kilometer subsea pipeline connects the Ruby platform to the dedicated terminal for processing at the Senipah onshore gas plant which is operated by Total E&P. The gas is delivered to a fertilizer plant owned by the buyer, PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur.

Exploration: Kerapu & West Sebuku PSCs

We are the operator of the Kerapu block with an interest of 70 percent and Japan Petroleum Exploration holding the remaining 30 percent. 3D seismic was acquired in 2010 and exploration drilling took place in 2013.

Mubadala Petroleum entered into the West Sebuku PSC agreement in May 2013 and is the operator with a 75.5 percent interest. INPEX Corporation holds the remaining 24.5 percent interest. The West Sebuku block surrounds the Sebuku block and acquisition of 3D seismic data over both blocks was completed in early 2014.
