Introduction


The Al-Zour Refinery KIPIC project is a grassroots refinery located in the Al-Zour area, south of Kuwait City. The Refinery will supply low Sulphur fuel to local power plants and enhance the competitiveness of Kuwait petroleum products in worldwide markets.

The refinery is expected to have a capacity of 615,000 barrels per day (97,800 m3/d), which makes it the largest refinery in the Middle East.


Challenges Faced

As mentioned previously, the project’s scope was segregated and spread among a large number of sub-contractors, making the process of proposing the materials and getting the approvals much more complicated. 

The project encountered political opposition by lawmakers; they claimed that the government had not consulted the Central Tenders Committee before awarding contracts to foreign companies.

 




USG BORAL contribution

USG ME managed to keep the connection with the project's developer and subcontractors. It supplied the project with many innovative and unique building products and solutions. The provided materials contained the following products:


  • Aluminum Metal Ceiling
  • Radar Ceramic tiles
  • Millenia Climaplus
  • Perforated gypsum tiles 
  • Laminated gypsum tiles 
  • Louna tiles 


With all these innovative building materials, the project was awarded the Gold Award for HSE Excellence and the Gold Award for Environmental Excellence from the American Society of Safety Professionals.

A new success story for USG ME products!


The fact is, nothing would compete USG Boral ME building products and solutions.
