    Dialoguewith CEO




    I would like to congratulate you on what have been accomplished in the past

    days including the step of placing the cornerstone the Nghi Son Refining

    and Petrochemical Complex which is built in Vietnam. This project is of

    great importance for KPC as it represents a new beginning for prosperity

    in the Kuwaiti oil industry. Moreover, it will help achieve several strategic

    goals among which penetrating the markets of east Asia which is witnessing

    an ostensible growth economically; in addition, the demand on oil and

    petroleum products is high in these markets. This will also provide a safe

    outlet for nearly 200,000 bpd of Kuwaiti crude oil. It will further reinforce

    the international status of KPC as this complex will lead to integration in

    the oil industry through combining between the industry of refining and the

    industry of petrochemicals.

    I would like also to extend appreciation to everyone sought to achieve such

    huge project including former ministers, chairpersons and CEOs, as their

    devoted efforts led to placing the cornerstone of the project and starting

    the actual implementation. These sincere efforts which the officials of the

    Kuwaiti oil sector put forth have enabled us to celebrate such gigantic

    project which is additional mark in KPCs history.

    I would like further to extend my appreciation to Kuwaits sincere sons

    who work seriously to preserve the countrys resources and develop them to

    fulfill the goals of sustainable development which all of us look forward to.
