Kuwait oil firms fully in line with HSE standards – ASSE

KUWAIT, May 2 (KUNA) — Kuwait state-owned oil companies’ operations are in line with international Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) standards, board chairman of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Kuwait Chapter (KC) said Monday.
Fadhel Al-Ali said government oil companies were forcing private sector firms and contractors to abide by environmental and health standards matching international ones.
Al-Ali, speaking to reporters on sidelines of a ceremony to honor HSE excellence awards’ winners, said major oil projects like the environmental fuel and Al-Zour station were environmental-friendly.
He said the awards were given to private companies and contractors working in oil and gas fields, and that ASSE was fully supporting these annual award ceremonies through KC.
The awards, he said, were like an ISO certificate because they were focusing on injuries, burns and accidents.
Al-Ali said 46 companies, which worked in Oman, the UAE and Kuwait, won the awards.
He said Kuwaiti oil companies have been implementing HSE standards for the past 10 years thus contributing to less accidents and injuries.
Director of HSE Department at Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) Ali Khashawi said the HSE field was not affected by the spending cuts implemented in the oil sector.
He said safety projects were related to Kuwait Petroleum Corporation’s (KPC) 2030 strategy.
Khashawi said KNPC was working other oil firms to implement HSE projects. (end) osj.bs
