Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) has completed the second phase of a gas pipeline project that carries gas from the Partitioned Neutral Zone’s (PNZ) offshore Khafji field to Al Zour, where it connects with the emirate’s existing pipeline network. This brings the line’s capacity to 40mn cfd according to a 12 January report by local Kuwaiti daily al-Anbaa. This implies an addition of 16mn cfd over the first phase which was completed in August 2021 with a 24mn cfd capacity (MEES, 13 August 2021). The PNZ is jointly operated by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, with the offshore portion managed by Khafji Joint Operations (KJO). Incremental increases in gas supply are a welcome development for Kuwait which is increasingly dependent on expensive LNG imports.
