BP has a long relationship with Kuwait
What we do
In September 2014, BP signed a technical services agreement with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) to bring BP’s expertise in enhanced oil recovery to the giant Burgan oilfield. BP was one of the founders of the original KOC, which first discovered oil at Burgan in February 1938. Years later, BP was the first oil company to be invited by the Kuwaiti government to assist in the redevelopment of Kuwait's oil industry after the 1990 Iraqi invasion. Today, BP remains committed to supporting Kuwait in the oil and gas industry - since 1992 we have helped KOC to manage the North and West Kuwait oil fields.
Our people and partners
BP has a representative office in Kuwait and is actively engaged with the government. BP provides technical advisory support to KOC through the deployment of BP experts to KOC to assist in enhancing production efficiency and reserves growth. BP is also involved with the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) in a portion of its tradable products. BP lubricants - represented through the BP and Castrol brands - are long-established in Kuwait, with a considerable market share. BP lubricants are distributed by Al Ghanim; Castrol by Al Fatooh; while the Veedol brand is distributed by Al Babtain.
BP in Kuwait is committed to developing local capabilities and talents through improving technical and management skills. Recent examples include our sponsorship of training programmes and technical visits to other BP locations with KPC. All our businesses throughout the Gulf region support the BP Young Adventurers programme, which takes teenagers on weekends of learning and adventure to help build their self-awareness, develop their leadership skills and increase their environmental awareness.
