The DUSUP Gas Control Station (GCS) controls the flow of pipeline gas and LNG from suppliers to the end users by a series of 16 control valve stations located at the center of Dubai fuel gas grid in Jebel Ali. The original GCS was constructed in 1993 and expanded in 2006 and 2010 to meet the increasing fuel requirement in Dubai.
State of the art control systems, flow meters, samplers and gas filters are incorporated into the design of the GCS to ensure the highest level of reliability and accuracy.
Additionally, DUSUP transports gas into the Northern Emirates through its pipeline network from the Dubai / Abu Dhabi border to the Dubai / Sharjah border to support the needs of Norther Emirates gas customers.
DUSUP supplies the energy needs of a number of key utility and industrial companies in Dubai, supplying natural gas to DEWA, Dubal, Dugas, ENOC and Dubai Petroleum for their power generation, desalination and other industrial needs. Today, DUSUP buys natural gas from Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Dolphin Energy under long term contracts.
The Margham Gas Plant and Field is located approximately 55 Km from Dubai on the Dubai / Hatta road. It is the largest gas field onshore Dubai. The field contains three gas-bearing geological formations located more than 10,000 feet below the ground surface.
The Pipeline Department designs, operates and maintains DUSUP's onshore pipelines and related facilities to International Standards
