KUWAIT - Director of the Comprehensive Planning Department at the Kuwait National Petroleum Company, Fahad Al-Ajmi, said the implementation of the fifth liquefied gas pipeline project is in line with the company’s plan and future strategic objectives related to the expansion of gas manufacturing capacity, reports Al-Qabas daily.

He explained that the implementation of the project will help Kuwait export propane and butane gases to global markets, to meet the growing demand for these products locally and globally.

This constitutes, according to Al-Ajmi, a new addition that supports the country’s development process.

Al-Ajmi pointed out that the fifth liquefied gas line enhances the company’s ability to process gas, as the total capacity of the five lines has reached 3.125 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day, and 332 thousand barrels of condensate and liquefied gas.

He went on to say, the directions and objectives of the company include the need to increase the production capacity of the gas treatment and liquefaction units to keep pace with the strategic direction of the KNPC to increase the production of natural gas associated and not associated with crude oil.

Hence the idea was to establishing the fifth liquefied gas pipeline, to accommodate the future increase in gas and condensate production.
