As part of a huge expansion plan the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), the downstream refining division of the Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC), has announced that it will invest $32 billion in several large projects by 2019.

According to the acting corporate planning manager Khaled al-Khayyat, the projects will include a permanent LNG importing facility, increasing the current import capacity from 500 million standard cubic feet a day (scfd) to 3 billion scfd.
