Kuwait reshuffles oil and gas leadership

Kuwait’s state-owned oil, gas, petrochemical, and services industries have new leaders.

New chairmen of the boards are Nabil Bouresli at Kuwait Oil, Asaad Al-Saad at Kuwait National Petroleum, Mohammed Al-Farhoud at Petrochemical Industries, Talal Al-Khaled Al-Sabah at Kuwait Oil Tanker, Mohammed Al-Mutairi at KPC Holdings Aruba A.E.C., Sanad Al-Sanad at Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration, Mohammed Sayyed Abdulwahab at Kuwait Gulf Oil, Mefreh Al-Shemmeri at Oil Sector Services, and Fouad Al-Abbasi at Kuwait Aviation Fueling Co.
