A WORD FROM THE CEO - November 2017

Positive Effects

Under the KPC umbrella, KOTC contributed to the success of Kuwait's 3rd Oil & Gas Conference-2017. The event was inaugurated at Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Center under the sponsorship of HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah. Plenty of major oil companies and other innovative service companies in oil, gas, refining and petrochemical sector were also involved in the conference various activities which were held at Mishref Fair grounds.

The conference represented a fine opportunity for the Ministry of Oil, KPC, and its subsidiaries to discuss and talk about increasing oil production, technological solutions, collective innovation, and HR development. Exchange of experience and knowledge about geology, oil exploration, production, refining, petroleum services and the latest oil-related technology were also a primary concern for participants.

The success of the previous two Kuwait Oil & Gas Conferences pushed KPC and its subsidiaries to hold the 3rd version. We wish that such an important regional and international event would continue as it underlines the prominence of Kuwait on the oil industry map and reflects its influence on international oil markets. We are proud of this years success and hope that it has created a positive effect. Our wish is that such success would be an incentive for us to do more to enhance the productivity of our oil industry and Kuwait's status in the region and at the world stage. May God help us in our effort.
