Al-Zour refinery strategic part of Kuwait 2035 vision

Al-Zour refinery

KUWAIT: The new Al-Zour refinery project is considered one of the most prominent strategic projects of ‘Kuwait 2035’ vision. The project is a significant edifice that would place Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) amongst the top global refining companies in terms of refining capacity and producing environmentally-friendly fuel that meets all international environment conditions.

The new refinery is an essential part of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation KNPC’s strategy to increase the refining capacity of Kuwait up to 1.41 million bpd, from the current 615,000 bpd, including 225,000 bpd of low-sulfur fuel oil to meet the requirements of power generating stations in Kuwait, which will highly reduce the environmental impacts, too. – KUNA
