Through its foundation in 1960, Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) was the principal public organization in the locale where the Hydrocarbon assets were overseen and taken advantage of by unfamiliar organizations. The Company’s vision was animating turn of events and giving an excellent involvement with taking care of public assets. In its viewpoint, KNPC came as a model for the native potential to embrace the board and double-dealing of the oil assets, what began to form into a huge type of revenue fit for supporting the general public government assistance and financing its general turn of events.

In 1975, the State of Kuwait gained full responsibility for. Its activities were exceptionally coordinated predominantly depending upon its petroleum treatment facility in Shuaiba and the promoting of oil based goods from Al-Ahmadi Refinery, in both nearby and global business sectors.

In 1980, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) was set up, as the State claimed resource and any remaining oil organizations in Kuwait, including KNPC, became KPC auxiliaries. At present, KNPC has two best in class Refineries, in particular Mina Abdullah Refinery (MAB) and Mina Al-Ahmadi Refinery (MAA). Shuaiba Refinery was closed down in March 2017 later the dismiss from the Clean Fuels Project (CFP). The complete creation limit of the two Refineries is 736,000 bpd of raw petroleum, and a gas handling limit of 2.5 billion scfpd.

MAB and MAA have progressed refining advances, following the patching up of the two Refineries during the 1980s. Among the main units at MAB Refinery are two CDUs, 4 Hydrogen creation units, 2 ARD units, a Vacuum Distillation unit, 2 deferred Coker units, and a Hydrocracking unit. The MAA Refinery presently has four Trains of ARDS units, a VGO Hydrocracker and a FCCU, other than a large group of Hydrogen creation and Hydrogen Recovery units, Distillate Hydrotreaters, Sulfur recuperation units and combined Sulfur granulation and storage spaces.

On the homegrown scene, KNPC is answerable for the deal and dissemination of all oil based goods in the nearby market. KPC and KNPC put into impact the pattern towards privatization and began in 2004 to move its Local Marketing resources, for example, the lube oil plant and the gas stations, to privately owned businesses.

KNPC has 63 filling stations, including 3 versatile stations, all over Kuwait. A 5-year intend to fabricate 99 stations is now in progress to react to the developing interest for gas and different powers.

As of now, KNPC is doing a few significant tasks that mean to extend its refining limit and improve change abilities, above all is the Clean Fuels Project (CFP). Later the fruition of the CFP in late 2021, KNPC refining limit will be 800,000 bpd. With the excellent low-sulfur (Euro-4 and Euro-5 grades) items, KNPC tries to enter new business sectors. Gas Train-5 is relied upon to be finished mid 2022, by which KNPC gas handling limit will then, at that point, arrive at 3.3 billion.

Meanwhile, the Company focused on its HR by executing an arrangement of consistent development of its public labor and furnishing its locales with profoundly qualified and talented HR. Up to March 2021, the level of Kuwaitis in the complete labor was around 89 % of the Company workforce, which added up to 5,339 representatives.
