KNPC denies laying off Kuwaiti staff

KUWAIT: Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) yesterday said it neither dismissed staff nor revoked any contract. Reports about purported layoff of Kuwaiti personnel following recent shutdown of Al-Shuaiba refinery were false, said Bassem Al-Issa, the KNPC official spokesman said. Status of the Kuwaiti staff at Al-Shuaiba refinery was on top of the company priorities, he said, explaining that the Kuwaiti personnel were transferred to other facilities with the same employment conditions. — KUNA
