The Pipeline Department designs operates and maintains DUSUP's onshore pipelines and related facilities to International Standards in order to ensure an uninterrupted flow of gas and other hydrocarbons across Dubai for our own supplies and imports from other countries. The pipeline network consists of several hundred kilometers of pipelines ranging from 48" high pressure gas pipelines down to 10" condensate lines.
The Pipeline Department also operates a No Objection Certificate (NOC) system across the Emirate of Dubai whereby any contractor or developer working near a pipeline must provide the details of their work plan for technical review and approval. This is to keep Dubai's pipeline infrastructure safe and in harmony with the construction and development activities across the Emirate.
Pipeline Department inspectors monitor all work near pipelines and patrol the entire pipeline system on a twice daily basis. As an additional safety measure to protect against third party encroachment, the pipeline corridors have been fenced and warning signs have been installed at 250 meter intervals along each pipeline route.
