New oil port for Kuwait

Kuwait: Kuwait City Municipality has agreed to grant Kuwait Oil Co. (KOC) a location in Abu Halifa to establish sea port facilities. Municipality administrator Abdullah al-Naumis said the facilities will be built on a 28,300 sq mtr area, noting that the request for the port had been denied in May due to environmental concerns.? The municipality's approval came after KOC reevaluated the impact of its port project, taking into account the environmental concerns. ?The Abu Halifa location is east of Kuwait's Al Maqwa oil field, and just north of the country's existing oil export facility at Mina al Ahmadi.
