Economic diversification features prominently on the national agenda of most countries in the Middle East. With rapid population growth, resulting in increased energy demand and the continued global interdependence of the power industry on oil; increasing national oil outputs is integral to building resilient and sustainable economies.
Oil accounts for close to half of Kuwait’s GDP and constitutes 95% of national exports. Long serving as a backbone to Kuwait’s economy, growth in oil activities are integral to financing mega projects set forth by Kuwait’s Vision 2040 strategy. Kuwait is spending over $500bn over the course of the next few years as it aims to boost its crude oil production capacity.
