Kuwait's KIPIC says first phase of Al-Zour refinery starts commercial operations

(Reuters) - Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Co (KIPIC) said the first phase of Al-Zour refinery has started commercial operations, according to state news agency (KUNA).

The commercial launch comes after the project started last month to produce and sell primary quantities of fuel oil and supply it to local power stations.

Originally planned more than a decade ago but repeatedly delayed, Al-Zour will be the largest integrated refinery and petrochemicals plant in Kuwait.
