KUWAIT CITY, Jan 19: Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has requested for renewal of a contract to upgrade the boilers (numbers one to six) in unit number 29 in Mina Ahmadi Refinery at a cost of KD14.69 million with Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Company as the latter is the only entity that can do the job well, reports Al-Anba daily.
The production capacity of the refinery is about 446,000 barrels daily. The refinery was established in 1949 as a simple one with operational energy capacity of not more than 25,000 barrels daily to cover the needs of the local market for petrol, diesel and kerosene.
