Kuwait National Petroleum Company announced early on Monday that all OF its oil installations have been successfully operated according the contingency plan it has worked out with Kuwait Petroleum Corporation.
The KNPC said in a statement that all plans that have been drawn up "to cope with the crisis have been executed and activated," adding that the company succeeded in securing supplies for fuel and power stations to meet the local market needs, according to the available capacities and resources, despite the circumstances caused by the strike.
The KNPC announcement came after the official spokesman of the oil sector, Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled Al-Sabah, affirmed that the emergency plan, executed by the KPC, was proceeding according to the schedule. He also added that "events have been followed up closely through the crisis operation room of the KBPC and its subsidiaries."
Acting Prime Minister and Finance Minister and Acting Oil Minister Anas Al-Saleh had called in a press release on the sector and workers' unions to resort to wisdom and consider higher national interests "and sit at the negotiating table to avert Kuwait oil sector disputes detrimental to the country's image and status locally and internationally."
