Kuwait Ministry of Oil & KPC to host 5th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit alongside CWC Group in Kuwait City

Article - March 21, 2018

Kuwait is planning to invest $112 billion in the next five years in the oil and gas sector to boost production, the CEO of Kuwait Petroleum Corp. said, therefore now is the ideal time to explore business opportunities in Kuwait.



Mr. Jamal Abdulaziz Jaafar, CEO of KOC, who will be speaking on Day 1 of the Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit, stated recently in an interview with CWC: “Global oil and gas consumption continue growing and it represents 57% of total primary energy consumption in the world, and both fuels will continue being the main source of energy for several years to come. That represents a strong opportunity to expand our market share through OPEC. KOC continues being recognized as one of the largest oil and gas companies in the world, and we have been, for several years, focused at implementing a growth strategy, given our large reserves base and our advantage of having the lowest costs in the world.”

The Regional CWC 5th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit under the Patronage of H.E. Bakheet Al-Rashidi, Kuwait Minister of Oil, will take place from 16-17 April 2018 in Jumeirah Hotel, and is officially hosted by KPC and its subsidiaries.
