  • Kuwait Shifts from Crude Oil to Petroleum Exports
Kuwait's oil export landscape has transformed from focusing on crude oil to refined petroleum products. This shift follows expansion of the country's refining capabilities, as per the US Energy Information Administration's updated Country Analysis Brief. By July 2023, Kuwait's refineries had the capacity to process 1.4 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil, a significant increase compared to the 600,000 b/d capacity in January 2021. This expansion is primarily due to the establishment of the new Al Zour refinery and expansion projects at existing refineries over the past two years, as reported by the EIA.
