Pakistan imports first low sulfur diesel shipment from Kuwait — KPC

– The Kuwait Petroleum Corporation’s (KPC) International Marketing declared on Friday exporting the first low sulfur diesel shipment to Pakistan on board of Al-Salam-2 owned by the Kuwait Oil Tanker Company.

Speaking to KUNA in a statement, the KPC said that it is the first shipment exported to Pakistan, adding that Pakistan State Oil held an official festival on this occasion in the presence of corporation’s representative in Karachi.

The move came after making unremitting efforts by the KPC’s International Marketing to keep pace with changes in characteristics of oil products at different global markets, it noted.

It also came in coincidence with operating the various production units in the environmental fuel project in the Kuwait National Petroleum Company.

Pakistan is a strategic market for the KPC as Kuwait is considered the largest supplier of diesel to Pakistan’s market.
