Kuwaiti Oil Firms Invite Western Companies To Study Renewable Energy Usage


A Kuwait newspaper reported that two state-owned Kuwaiti oil firms invited five Western companies to bid for consultancy to study the usage of renewable energy in their operations.


These five companies comprise the UK’s Amec Foster Wheeler, London-based NexantECA, Germany’s Dornier Suntrace, France’s Technip, and Worley Engineering of Australia.


According to the paper, the Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company and Kuwait National Petroleum Company asked these firms for bids for “consultancy services” that include feasibility studies and other services related to the use of renewable energy at the facilities owned by them.


It said that the sources claimed the companies wanted to follow the trend of most oil sector operators to switch to clean fuel, mostly solar and wind energy, in addition to hydrogen production.
