Kuwait plans to boost gas production in the upcoming years in order to limit import expenses, Arab Times reported.

Kuwait’s plan is aiming to produce around a billion cubic feet of gas per day (bcf/d) from non-associated fields in the northern neighborhood of Nawras by 2020. In addition, the country is working on producing four bcf/d by 2040.

Supporting its plan, the country is working on several projects, including the project of the early production unit 50.

Kuwait’s plan to increase production comes in line with the country’s plan to support sustainable development and clean energy. Moreover, it leads to generating revenues of around $850 M.
