Firefighters have extinguished a fire that broke out in gas pump unit number 33 in the gas liquefaction plant at Kuwait’s Mina Al Ahmadi oil refinery, Kuwait National Petroleum Co (KNPC) said in a Twitter post on Friday.
The fire, which broke out on Thursday, did not affect exports and was put out shortly afterwards, KNPC said.
“Efforts continue until this moment to deal with the remaining liquefied gas in the aforementioned unit,” the company said on Thursday.
