The boss of Qatar Petroleum said this week that, despite the efforts of its Arab neighbors in the Gulf to diplomatically isolate the country, Qatar would not seek to cut gas deliveries through the 364-km Dolphin gas pipeline to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Qatar Petroleum Boss Saad al-Kaabi said we look upon the people of the UAE as our "brothers" and cutting supplies would do "great harm" to them.

The Dolphin pipeline links Qatar's giant North Field with the UAE and Oman and presently transports 2 billion cu ft of gas per day to these countries.

Four Arab states - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt - severed diplomatic and trade relations with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "extremism" and aligning with their regional rival Iran - charges that Qatar has repeatedly denied.

The Saudi-led bloc of nations cut off sea and air links with Qatar and ordered Qatari nationals to leave their countries within 14 days.
