Kuwait Petroleum International refining and oil products summary

Kuwait Petroleum International refining and oil products summary

Report summary

Kuwait Petroleum International’s entry into the European downstream market was driven by its aim to secure a long-term outlet for Kuwaiti crude oil and refined product. Through a number of acquisitions it grew into an integrated refining and marketing business across a number of geographies. It has since consolidated on what it considers to be key markets namely Scandinavia, Italy and the Benelux. The acquisition of Shell's Italian marketing and logistics assets in 2014 has strengthened its KPI's position in that market with the former Shell retail assets being concentrated in the north of the country where demand is highest. Aside from its refining and retail assets, Europe remains a key market for Kuwaiti jet fuel with the UK alone importing over 1 million tonnes a year.
