Fire engulfs kerosene unit at Mina Abdulla

April 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- A fire shut down a kerosene unit in the refinery of Mina Abdulla, Kuwait state news agency KUNA said. Officials are investigating the cause of the fire, which was extinguished by early Wednesday, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The head of state-run Kuwait Petroleum Corp, Hashem Hashem, said the expected reason of the fire is a mechanical failure at one of the pumps.

There are no casualties, Hashem said.

The other Mina Abdulla refinery units are operating normally, he added.

Kuwait National Petroleum Companys (KNPC) plans the retirement of existing processing facilities at Shuaiba and a major upgrade and expansion of the Mina Al Ahmadi and Mina Abdullah refineries to integrate the refining system into one complex with full conversion operation. The Fluor-led joint venture with Daewoo Engineering & Construction and Hyundai Heavy Industries is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction as well as associated pre-commissioning and testing support for the Mina Abdullah Package 2. After commissioning, both the Mina Abdullah and Mina Al Ahmadi refineries will have a capacity of 800,000 barrels-per-stream day to supply local and international demand for clean fuels meeting the most stringent environmental requirements.
