Kuwait, June 13 (BNA): Kuwait Oil Company announced today the operation of a new strategic gas pipeline extending from the northern Kuwait operations area to Mina Al-Ahmadi, with a size of 40 inches.
The Kuwait Oil Company said in a statement carried by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the line with a length of 140 km comes in line with the company’s plan to increase natural gas production to meet the requirements of the local market.
The capacity of the line reaches 900 million standard cubic feet, as it starts from the gas boosting station 132 in northern Kuwait, passing through the gas and condensate separation facilities in the north and south of Kuwait, and finally reaching the Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery, the statement added.
KOC said the pipeline will contribute to keeping pace with KOC’s 2040 strategy, which aims to increase oil and gas production and make the most of Kuwait’s hydrocarbon resources.
The line meets the requirements of global markets while ensuring the highest standards of security, safety and environmental preservation, taking into account the requirements of the local consumer.
