KUWAIT CITY, March 14, (KUNA): Kuwait’s “Clean Fuel Project” has reached an overall progress of 85 percent and should be finished by the end of the year, an official said on Tuesday.
The General Secretariat of the Supreme Council for Planning and Development’s Assistant Undersecretary Bader Al-Refai provided the information in a statement to the press, on the sidelines of a field visit to the site of the project at the premises of Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).
He revealed that the monumental enterprise worth KD 4.68 billion ($15 billion) would provide a staggering 570 opportunities for employment, meeting the growing needs of the job market.
Meanwhile, Suad Al-Awadh, who follows the progress of plans and programs at the secretariat, said that the project aims to create a diverse and sustainable economy. She added that the purpose of the visit was to address any existential obstacles that could hinder the progress of one of KNPC’s highly touted projects.
Indicators of the government’s inability to complete housing projects emerged 24 hours after State Minister for Housing and Public Services Affairs Dr Jenan Bushahri issued a warning in this regard, reports AlRai daily quoting sources.
Sources said the Central Tenders Committee (CTC) has rejected the proposed establishment of a sewage water purification plant in Mutla’a Housing City.
Meanwhile, sources from the Ministry of Public Works disclosed the CTC intends to float two tenders for this project. Sources added the ministry has obtained approval from its finance counterpart on the financial link to the project which is expected to be completed in 2022 at a total cost of KD 150 million.
