Kuwait is short of gas and needs to arrange alternative supplies to avoid being forced to burn more crude and high-sulphur fuel oil at its power plants, Ahmad al-Jemaz, deputy managing director of Kuwait National Petroleum Co’s Shuaiba refinery, said at a conference in Tokyo.
Electricity demand in the Middle Eastern country is expected to triple by 2030 from the current 10 gigawatts, he said, speaking at a two-day conference – hosted by Japan’s Co-operation Centre for Petroleum –that ended yesterday.
“To close the gap, we may need to burn all of our crude, and that’s not economically and environmentally feasible,” Jemaz said.
“We have to have alternative energy” sources.
