Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) said on 12 September 2019 that its Mina Abdullah Refinery — which stopped working suddenly at around 4.15pm on the day – had resumed operations.

The refinery had to operate under hot-in-place recycling after a halt to steam production, which did not have “any impact on export operations”.

The stoppage led to an increase in excess hydrocarbon gases and forced the company to resort to flaring for operations to resume, KNPC spokesperson Abdallah Al-Ajmi told Kuwait’s state news agency Kuna.

Al Ajmi said "there are no impacts, as a result, on operations”.
