Kuwait lets contract for Al-Zour refinery

Kuwait National Petroleum Co. has let a services-related contract to Honeywell for its 615,000-b/d Al-Zour refinery complex to be built in southern Kuwait.

As part of the contract, Honeywell will provide the integrated control and safety system for the refinery as well as the front-end engineering design, according to Honeywell.

The refinery is targeted for start-up in 2018 and will help to meet domestic demand and export of ultralow-sulfur products such as fuel oil, diesel and kerosene, as well as petrochemical feedstocks, Honeywell said.

The Al Zour refinery, which was approved in 2011, will be Kuwait’s fourth refinery, making it the largest refinery in the entire Middle East (OGJ Online, Apr. 1, 2013; Dec. 4, 2012; July 1, 2011).
