KOC takes part in fighting the Mina Abdullah fire

Acting on its principle of national responsibility, Kuwait Oil Company, represented by the Fire Group, participated in combating the huge fire that broke out Monday evening in one of Kuwait Ports Authority’s strategic warehouses, west of Mina Abdullah. 

The Company's contribution to the fire extinguishing process — which spanned an area of about one million square meters and in which eight teams from various institutions led by the Kuwait Fire Service Directorate participated — came within the framework of supporting the efforts of state institutions in all sectors, as well as due to the great experience and tremendous capabilities that the Company has in managing major accidents. 

These efforts culminated in successfully controlling the fire without any human injury. His Excellency the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al-Saleh, and His Excellency the Minister of State for Services Affairs, Minister of State for National Assembly Affairs Mubarak Al-Harees, and a number of officials in the state, attended the scene to inspect the firefighting operations.

It is worth noting that this success was the result of joint cooperation with state institutions, and the strategic efforts and plans that have been put in place to develop the Company's capabilities in terms of both national equipment and expertise to deal with the various dangers that come with the Company's operations, as well as its national duty to enhance and support Kuwait’s security.
