There are some external factors that might have a significant impact on the company, those factors are: - Political discrepancy: as we are a company that has an agreement with Qatar government for the supply of natural gas, it is important to keep our good relation with the country to continue the business. - new source of energy: Dolphin Energy is a company that supplies gas to the customers, in case of finding any replaceable source of energy for gas that is less costly and has no impact to the environment, our company will shut down and loses its business. - Price changes: if the prices of the equipment used in the operation escalated, the price of our product will increase. - New competitor: another external factor that would affect the company is if there is a new company of gas joining the market. Such competitors will affect our market price, it will have an effect on our manpower costs, people will compare the quality of the product produced, etc. 5- How the business is structured:
