Kuwait Petroleum Cancels Investment In Rotterdam Refinery, Considers Other Options

Kuwait Petroleum International Ltd. has cancelled a planned $1.4 billion investment in its 88,000 barrel per day (bpd) Rotterdam refinery and may sell it, a spokesman said, as Europe's refiners struggle with overcapacity and global competition. "Now we have to look at all other options," spokesman Jan Maarten van der Steen said on October 6, 2014, adding that Kuwait Petroleum was talking to banks including HSBC about managing a possible sale. Converting the Europoort refinery to a storage terminal or closing it entirely are possibilities, he said, although adding that closure was "not the option anyone wants". "It's also our intention to keep all personnel on board," he said, "We are working on a new collective labour agreement." Van der Steen said Kuwait Petroleum hoped to make a preliminary decision by spring 2015, though emphasizing that talks were in early stages.
