    Kuwait’s Mina Abdulla Fire Is Now Out, Ministry Spokesman Says
    2008-06-05 05:31 (New York)

    By Fiona MacDonald
         June 5 (Bloomberg) — There has been a “small fire” at
    Kuwait’s Mina Abdulla Industrial Park, which hosts one of the
    Gulf state’s three refineries,
    a Kuwait interior ministry
    spokesman said.
         “It was just a small fire and it is now out,” Colonel
    Mohammed al-Sabr, a Kuwaiti Interior Ministry spokesman, said
    in a telephone interview in Kuwait today. “One Indian worker
    was injured, a minor injury.”
         Kuwait National Petroleum Co., which operates the
    country’s three refineries, last month awarded contracts to
    build the $15 billion Al-Zour refinery to four South Korean
    construction companies and Fluor Corp
    . Kuwait also plans to
    upgrade two of its three existing refineries, Mina Ahmadi and
    Mina Abdullah.
         Coupled with Al-Zour, the nation’s total refinery capacity
    will then rise to 1.4 million barrels a day from the current
         Today’s fire had “nothing to do with the oil refinery,”
    said Mohammed al-Ajmi, a spokesman for state-owned Kuwait
    National Petroleum Co. “It must be at the industrial park as
    there has been no fire here today,” he said.

    Here is update on Kuwait’s Mina Abdulla Refinery Fire & 3 Refinery (@ cokers) Expansions.
    Fluor & 4 SKorea  companies are doing KNPC Al-Zour Refinery (& coker addition) expansion. The KNPC Mina Abdulla coking refinery expansion and Mina Ahmadi Refinery expansion & coker additon are also mentioned.
    If KNPC does not add Resid Hydrotreaters as existing Mina Abdulla coker has then they will make 7% Sulfur Fuel coke from Heavy Kuwait crude.  If KNPC adds RHDS then it will make todays type 3.5-4% Sulfur Anode-Fuel petcoke.  Indications are Al-Zour may put in a RHDS with coker for HFO option at $14MM price tag.
