Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) declared that a gas leakage took place at one of the gas branches of the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), which is injecting gas into Abdullah port refinery. KNPC said a gas leakage took place at one of the natural gas lines of KOC, which is feeding Abdullah port refinery.

It added that KOC specialized teams handled the leakage, and isolated the main gas pipeline feeding in the refinery in order to prevent any accident, and controlled the leakage according to measures applied in such cases, and in accordance with the coordinating steps accredited between KOC and KNPC. It added that shortage in the natural gas supplies caused the closure of most the refining units of Abdullah port.

Finally, it said that the gas pipeline was repaired, and started to work again, adding that other units of the refinery are operating successively according to accredited measures. The accident did not cause any casualties, and the exports and the process of supplying with petroleum products have not been affected due to the existence of a strategic stockpile at the refinery, it noted.
