Abu Dhabi, 17 April, 2012: “Dolphin Energy Limited confirms that a number of firms have
responded to an invitation to tender and have been shortlisted for an Engineering,
Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract which will see an upgrade to
compression facilities at its plant in Ras Laffan," said a company statement.

"A contract has already been awarded to Rolls Royce Dresser to supply three new gas
compressors with gas turbine drivers,” continued the statement. “The move will help
ensure continuous supply of natural gas to the UAE and Oman by increasing the overall
reliability and availability of Dolphin’s gas compression facilities.”

“Dolphin Energy Limited will award the Engineering, Procurement and Construction
(EPC) contract in due course for the installation of the compressors. Media reports that
Dolphin Energy will increase throughput to 3 billion scf/day in 2015 are incorrect.


Ends.
