What we do

bp was one of the founders of the original Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), which first discovered oil at Burgan in 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 in 1992.

Today, bp is proud to be supporting Kuwait within two agreements; an Enhanced Technical Services Agreement (ETSA) with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) signed in 2016 and a Technical Services Agreement (TSA) with Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC) signed in 2018. The ten-year ETSA with KOC enables bp to bring its expertise in enhanced oil recovery to the Burgan oilfield in South and East Kuwait through 50 secondment opportunities of bp’s technical experts. Under the TSA, bp provides advice and technical experts to help enhance operational excellence, reliability management, commissioning and start-up readiness at Al- Zour refinery.

Social investment

During the COVID-19 pandemic, bp Kuwait supported a local NGO partner to deliver necessary food parcels to impacted families who have either had salary cuts, or have not been paid by employers. Food parcels were enough to sustain each family for a period of two to three months.
