Kuwait Operates LPG Processing Unit in Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery
KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT: A worker walks at the Gathering Center 15 (GC 15) oil facility 28 March 2005 in the northern Al-Rawdhatain oilfield, 80 Kms from Kuwait City. OPEC-member Kuwait will boost its crude output by more than 150,000 barrels per day (bpd) when its largest gathering center becomes fully operational next month, an oil executive said. The center was partly reopened in January, nearly three years after it was shut down because of an explosion that killed four workers, wounded 19 and damaged more than half the facility.

Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) began the operations of a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) processing unit in Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery on October 25, according to the company’s spokesman, Reuters reported citing Kuwait news agency (KUNA).

The gas processing unit will have a production capacity of around 2,264 barrels per day (b/d), the spokesman pointed out.

It is worth observing that KNPC has two refineries: Mina Abdullah refinery and Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery. The two refineries have a production capacity of around 736,000 b/d of crude oil, in addition to a gas processing capacity of approximately 2.5 billion standard cubic feet per day (bscf/d).
