KNPC wants to increase productivity at the facility while delivering products that comply with state-of-the-art environmental standards. KNPC's Clean Fuels Project involves upgrading the Mina Abdullah and Mina Al-Ahmadi refineries to increase capacity.
This Clean Fuels Project (CFP) is being executed on the three KNPC owned and operated refineries in Kuwait: Mina Al Ahmadi (MAA), Mina Abdullah (MAB) and Shuaiba (SHU), all within 10 kilometers apart.
As part of CFP, KNPC plans the retirement of the processing facilities at SHU and a major upgrade/expansion of MAA and MAB to integrate the refining system into one complex with full conversion operation. Overall process capacity will increase from 736,000 BPSD (after SHU retirement) to 800,000 BPSD.
