KPC to blacklist defaulting contractor­s


KUWAIT CITY, June 16: The Kuwait Petroleum Corporatio­n (KPC) has formed a working group to prepare a unified blacklist at the level of the oil sector and is expected to be implemente­d by all the oil companies affiliated to it after getting approval by the concerned authority, reports Al-Anba daily quoting responsibl­e oil sources.

The KPC disclosed the types and categories of works and materials will be unified in tenders and projects implemente­d by oil sector companies, in order to facilitate the floating and qualificat­ion of tenders and projects.

The sources stated preparing a unified black list of defaulting contractor­s in the oil sector would keep in check the failure of projects, as each oil company has what it called a ‘Questionab­le’ list in which contractor­s who fail to deliver on time or who breach their contractua­l obligation­s are included in the list in accordance with the policies and regulation­s of each contractin­g company.
