 Qatar’s Gulf International Services (GIS), the leading service group, has announced that its subsidiary Gulf Drilling International (GDI) has signed a contract with Dolphin Energy for drilling rig services.

 
The contract was signed by Mubarak A al-Hajri, managing director and chief executive officer and Hassan al-Emadi, general manager, Dolphin Energy, Qatar.
 
The work under this contract will be performed by the high spec jack-up rig "Al Jassra" and will consist of drilling three wells on the DOL 1 production platform located in offshore waters of Qatar. The service will commence this month.
 
GDI has provided liftboat services to Dolphin Energy in the past and noted that its new liftboat "Al Safliya" is set to commence working for Dolphin Energy under a five-year contract later this month. 
 
Al Hajri said that GDI has concluded this significant contract with Dolphin Energy as it will broaden our clientele and business portfolio. He noted that the contract will provide the company with an opportunity to demonstrate the highest levels of professional expertise while improving its overall rig utilisation.
 
Ebrahim Ahmad al-Mannai, managing director, GIS, said, "GIS is pleased with this fruitful partnership of its subsidiary GDI and Dolphin Energy. As we are committed to increase the company's shareholder value, we are looking forward to the start of operation of 'Al Jassra' for Dolphin Energy."
