Kuwait National Petroleum Co (KNPC) is studying the construction of a new oil refinery in the south of the country, the oil ministry’s website said on Sunday, citing the chief executive officer of the state-owned company, Mohammed al-Mutairi.

KNPC is also studying increasing the capacity of clean fuels projects planned at its existing refineries, and at the al-Zour refinery, which is under construction, al-Mutairi was quoted as saying.

Al-Zour is planned to be one of the biggest refineries in the Middle East, according to al-Mutairi.
