Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, plans to build a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal at Al-Zour in Kuwait, approximately 90km south of the Kuwait’s capital, Kuwait City, near the border with Saudi Arabia. The project includes the construction of a re-gasification facility, storage tanks and marine facilities. Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) selected a consortium led by Hyundai Engineering Company (HEC) for the construction of Al-Zour LNG project and Marine Core and Charter (MCC) for the delivery of rock materials and gravel. Once fully-operational, the facility is expected to produce approximately 22 million metric tonnes (MMT) of natural gas a year and will have a storage capacity of 1.8 million m³ of LNG. The liquefaction capacity of the terminal will be 30 billion cubic metres a day (bcm/d).
