KUWAIT: Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC) has exported the first shipment of low-sulfur fuel produced at Al-Zour refinery. Abdullah Al-Ajmi, KIPIC’s official spokesperson, told KUNA that the shipment was destined for Singapore, adding that the boarding tanker belonged to British Petroleum Singapore.
The giant ship docked at Al-Zour terminal on Monday and was filled with the low-sulfur cargo Tuesday morning. The export is a significant accomplishment that would pave the way for the Kuwaiti oil derivatives to be exported to Europe and the global market, and this in turn would bolster Kuwait’s status as a credible partner in the world energy markets. – KUNA
