One of the studies will target increasing gas production for manufacturing purposes to 3.7 billion cubic meters per day by 2025, and the other is study to create two new gas pipelines.

Kuwait has some access to associated gas from oil production, and it also imports LNG from a terminal in Mina al-Ahmadi. The country has been planning to build a second LNG import terminal in al-Zour, and the 11 mtpa terminal is expected to come onstream in 2021.

The studies are part of KNPC's expenditure plan aimed at boosting the country's refining capacity to 2 million b/d by 2035, from a current rate of around 1.4 million b/d.

Kuwait has been expanding its al-Zour refinery project. Once the first phase is completed, refining capacity is expected to reach 1.7 million b/d by 2025. The second phase will increase capacity to 2 million b/d and is expected to be completed by 2035.
