J-V agreement signed for Hamriyah gas pipeline

The first phase of the project was completed in May, 2006, and has since been delivering gas to the SEWA power station at Hamriyah.

The main pipeline of the joint Hamriyah gas pipeline project is the 32-km long, 48-in diameter, gas pipeline that connects the Sharjah gas hub at Sajaa to the fast-growing industrial area at Hamriyah, with a capacity of 1bn cuft/d.

Commenting on the agreement, Rashid Al-Jarwan, general manager of Dana Gas, said, “This project is a prime example of the solutions that can be achieved through the cooperation of government and private sector entities.” He added that “the strategic partnership between the two companies for this project in the UAE has been very positive and has laid the groundwork for future projects throughout the region. We see this joint venture agreement as an opportunity to build upon for future cooperation, thereby improving the services to the end users of this vital pipeline.”
