KUWAIT CITY, Jan 8: The separation zone between the Kuwaiti Nuwaiseeb and Saudi Khafji ports, and its Kuwaiti side, remained outside the cleaning contracts concluded by the Kuwait Municipality, while the Ministry of Interior did not adopt any cleaning contract for it, which caused the accumulation of waste between the fence and the street on the Kuwaiti side, reports Al-Rai daily.
The citizens have expressed their dissatisfaction with the neglect of the special area of the State of Kuwait and the Nuwaiseeb port because of the absence of any cleaning workers removing the waste although the part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is permanently cleaned and there is no accumulation of waste.
The Al-Rai daily followed what the citizens shared with the Kuwait Municipality, which was confirmed by an official source in the Ahmadi branch, that this area is not subject to the municipality’s cleaning contracts, a region supervised by the Ministry of Interior, indicating that the municipality is fully prepared to clean it in the event the Interior Ministry requests and opens the way for it.
Meanwhile, within the framework of the Kuwaiti-Saudi agreement on the neutral zone, the two countries have reached an agreement with a global advisor to study the options and engineering designs of Al-Durra Gas Field in the divided area (neutral zone), reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources.
Sources explained the study is aimed at determining the best options, especially in the separation of the shares of the partners – whether from the sea or others, although it is likely that separation will be from the sea. “Nevertheless, we have to wait until the study is completed to determine the best way and cost of various solutions in order to take the final decision,” sources added. Sources said the study has many aspects such as storage capacity, production method, quantities and other technicalities.
