FYI – If the fires are sabotage targets then future attempts could also create a crisis for the Aluminum industry. The KNPC petcoke has become a critical supply for the calcining industry in the production of Calcined anode grade petroleum coke for the Aluminum smelting industry globaly. The The Middle East/Asia Smelters: Kuwait, Alba, Rain & some China smelters do not have alternate supply options for the same quantity or quality. Kuwait, China & Brazil are the only countries that have plans to produce some new green anode grade petcoke that potentially could be exportable to countries where many anode cokers have/are becoming fuel cokers.
