KUWAIT, May 27 (KUNA) -- Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) announced Thursday the completion of all units of the biofuel project after fulfilling successfully the hydrocracking unit No. 114 at Mina Abdullah Refinery, paving the way for full operation of the project.
Speaking to KUNA, Ghanim Al-Otaibi, Acting Deputy CEO for projects, said it is the largest unit of its kind across the country, with a capacity of 70,000 low-sulfur diesel and high quality kerosene barrels per day.
The unit has specifications that meet the European standards and requirements, Al-Otaibi added.
Unit 114 is the last of 70 as part of the second and third phases of the refinery, he said.
It is one of the most important of Kuwait's oil schemes as it enables KNPC to produce high-quality oil and clean products, he stated.
This contributes to boosting the company's profits through opening new global markets for Kuwaiti oil products, he asserted. (end)
