Van Oord successfully executed the impressive ground improvement project for client Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC).

The project, which started in 2014, involved the reclamation of 65 million cubic meters of sand and extensive soil improvement.

The reclamation area of 1,320 ha is intended for one of the largest oil refining plants in the Middle East.

The Al-Zour Refinery will be constructed on the reclaimed land in a ‘sabkha area’, a salt plain near the coast, 30 kilometers north of the Saudi border.

The reclamation project, executed by Van Oord, was the first phase of KNPC’s investment program for this new refinery.

Van Oord continues to work for KNPC in Kuwait. This project comprises land reclamation for the construction of a port and the first phase of a LNG import facility.
