Official terms gas plant shutdown as normal procedure
The Oil Sector's Spokesman Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled said Tuesday the shutdown of gas station (BS 150) is a normal precuation, pointing to the operation of stations BS 140 and BS 160 instead.
 
Sheikh Talal said in a press release issued by the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) that as the oil workers' strike entered its third day on Tuesday, oil production operations are on increase.
The spokesman added that efforts were being exerted in order to resume the normal levels of production and operation at all oil facilities, noting an increase in production rates following the operation of gas collection centers 11, 12 and 24.
 
"Production and export operations are going on normally, and traffic of tankers at KNPC ports is going as planned as per the contingency plan," Sheikh Talal said.
 
The KPC's international marketing sector is in touch with clients in order to fulfill the needs of world markets, he pointed out.
 
In this context, he spoke highly of "friendly" oil companies which provided the KPC with a group of efficient technicians and workers with a view to boosting oil production in the country.
 
Earlier in the day, the spokesman announced that Kuwaiti oil facilities' average daily production has surged to 1.5 million barrel.
 
Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is racing against time to resume operation of oil collection centers No. 21 and 24 to fully resume the state's oil and gas production, Sheikh Talal said in a press statement.
 
He assured that Kuwait Petroleum Corporation's marketing sector has also been able to fulfil its exporting commitments without any delay or rescheduling of loading time.
 
Sheikh Talal added that operations in Petrochemical Industries Company and Kuwait Oil Tanker Company are proceeding normally.
 
Oil sector laborers started Sunday a strike in protest against proposed austerity measures on the background of the sharp drop in oil prices.
