Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) plans to float a tender worth $8.3 million on June 17 for the purchase of spare turbine and compressor parts for gas operations at the KNPC-owned Ahmadi Refinery, Arab News reported.

The tender comes as the refinery’s fourth pipeline becomes operational, with the fifth planned to begin operations in 2019. Each pipeline will have a capacity of close to 800 million cubic meters per day.

KNPC aims to increase Kuwait’s capacity to produce and manufacture gas to meet domestic needs and increase its overseas exports.
