October 23, 2019


Abstract : The sixth set of oil-refining equipment for the Kuwait New Refinery Project (NRP), constructed by China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec), was handed over to its general contractor on Tuesday.

KUWAIT CITY, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- The sixth set of oil-refining equipment for the Kuwait New Refinery Project (NRP), constructed by China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec), was handed over to its general contractor on Tuesday.

The successful handover of all the six sets of equipment marked the ending of the project undertaken by Sinopec Fifth Construction Company, NRP's sub-contractor.

At the handover ceremony, Cheng Yongru, economic and commercial counselor at the Chinese embassy in Kuwait, said that the project is a model for cooperation between China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and Kuwait Vision 2035.

He expressed the hope that more Chinese companies would continue strengthening cooperation with the Kuwaiti side for more achievements.

In the past three years, Sinopec Fifth Construction Company has installed on the project a total of 22,400 tons of steel structures, welded 2.4 million-inch pipes, installed 1026 units of equipment, and laid 3,700 km of cables, Wang Zhiwei, the project manager of the company.

Mustafa Abdul-Hamid Al Sane, the Kuwaiti representative on the project and president of Al Manafa Group, hailed the successful handover of the refinery project.

It is a huge achievement, he said, noting that "we are very impressed to see this done in a short time."

Under the contract, the Chinese company is responsible for installing six sets of oil-refining equipment for the NRP with contract value of 519 million U.S. dollars.

Wang said that the project is currently the largest refinery in the Middle East.
