Children found the Fair a big hit and learnt a lot of the importance of environmental protection
Since the event’s launch in 2004 Dolphin’s HSE department has been a strong supporter of the Qatar Petroleum Environment Fair.
And it was with this strong sense of commitment that the company participated in the Fair which is now in its sixth year. Taking place at the Doha Exhibition Center from 24th to 26th April 2010 and under the patronage of His Excellency, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Deputy Premier, Minister of Energy and Industry, this year’s Fair was inaugurated by two ministers – His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Al-Sada, Minister of State for Energy and Industry Affairs and His Excellency, Minister of Environment, Abdullah Bin Mubarak Bin Aboud Al-Midhadhi.
The three-day event aimed to promote environmental awareness among energy sector employees and their families and was held under the theme, ‘We are all responsible.’
Dolphin’s presence was marked with a stand which detailed the company’s commitment to environmental protection, awareness and education. This featured the Dolphin Turtle Monitoring Program which has been taking place along the coast of the Dolphin Plant since 2005; the company’s recycling program that has been initiated at Dolphin Tower and the gas processing plant at Ras Laffan and company’s interactive e-books ‘Dolphin’ and ‘CORAL’.
The event was well attended and provided a good platform for children to learn about the environment and an opportunity for environmental professionals to meet, interact, and exchange ideas.
