Kuwait's Municipal Council has designated a substitute site for Petrochemicals Industries Company's integrated Olefins III and Aromatics II project.

The development is planned for implementation in Al-Zour Refinery.

According to KUNA, Dr Mansour Al-Khurainej, head of Al-Ahmadi Governorate's delegation, said the council has earmarked 11 locations in Hadiya area for converter stations.

A "dearth of power stations in the area" led to Hadiya being selected as the site for converter stations.

In addition, the council has also agreed to Kuwait National Petroleum Company's request to expand its premises in Al-Ahmadi area.
