The government-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) announced on Sunday the inauguration of a “strategic” 40-inch gas line, stretching from northern Kuwait to the Ahmadi port.
In a tweet, the corporation stated that the initiation of the gas line aligns with the strategic plan outlined by the KPC and its subsidiaries to increase oil and natural gas production, fulfilling local market requirements.
Last September, the Kuwait Oil Company, a subsidiary of the KPC, indicated that Kuwait intends to enhance natural gas production to meet local energy demand.
Ahmadi Port Refinery is a gas liquefaction plant, and pipelines for exporting liquified gas and refined petroleum products.
The refinery receives natural and liquid gas to produce fuel gas for use in power stations and industries. It also produces liquefied gas for domestic use, according to the KPC’s website.
