The Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) has appointed Kuwait-based Combined Group Contracting Company (CGC) to build 10 new filling stations across the country. The deal is said to be worth $51.25m according to the Kuwait news Agency.
The contract was signed by Mohammed Al-Mutairi, chief executive officer of KNPC and Raad Al-Abdullah, vice chairman of CGC. The deal is part of KNPC’s plans to build a total of 19 new petrol stations in Kuwait.
The stations will be built using a modern architectural style, which is said to reflect the company’s image and will incorporate various services and amenities.
Speaking about the deal, Al-Mutairi emphasized that the contract should be implemented on schedule, as it is of paramount importance to the company’s expansion plans. He noted that the plans matched Kuwait’s urban sprawl, particularly in new residential developments.
Al-Mutairi noted that the contract for the nine remaining stations will be awarded at a later date.
