The existing Dolphin tank farm includes three 500,000 barrel tanks, and an export loading dock. However, there is a requirement for additional capacity of one 500,000 barrel and two 660,000 barrel tanks, along with additional export loading facilities.

Dolphin Energy produces more than 1 billion cubic feet of gas a day from its offshore Qatar field. This is processed at Ras Laffan and then exported by pipeline to the UAE.

Dolphin is the operator of the tank farm under a joint venture agreement between Qatar Petroleum, Qatar Shell GTL and Dolphin Energy itself.
