Canadian Ambassador Visits KOC

KOC CEO Hashem Sayed Hashem recently received an official, high-level Canadian Trade Mission headed by Canada’s Ambassador to Kuwait, H.E. Martine Moreau. The Trade Mission was comprised of representatives from Canada’s oil, gas and technical service companies.

The meeting with the Canadian delegation, attended by Deputy CEO for Planning and Commercial Affairs Jamal Jaafar, Group Managers and Team Leaders, touched on the potential contribution of leading Canadian companies to help KOC achieve some of its strategic goals as they relate to upstream oil and gas initiatives.
In his welcoming speech, Hashem praised the long and distinguished relationship of cooperation that exists between KOC and Canadian companies. The CEO noted that all the concerned Departments and Groups from KOC were present at the meeting to help answer any questions the Canadian delegation had about the Company’s areas of operation, future plans, and strategic goals.
In a speech she made on the occasion, the Canadian Ambassador said the visit comes within the framework of a GCC tour that will take the delegation to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain for talks with Bahrain’s national oil company and Saudi Arabia’s ARAMCO. The delegation will then head to the UAE to attend the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC).
Moreau maintained that the visit has the full support of the Canadian government, which was represented in the delegation by delegates from the Alberta and Ontario Governments.
The Canadian delegation of 11 companies was then briefed on KOC’s 2030 Strategy, its objectives, and the areas of opportunities that existed. The delegation was also briefed on the pre-qualification requirements for contractors and manufacturers.
In a statement made to Energy, Canada’s Commercial Counsellor in Kuwait, Tammy Ames, said the goal of the tour was to explore areas of cooperation and familiarize the delegation with local business processes in order to exchange expertise and services with the best interest of all parties in mind.
