Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC)
60 years of achievements and leadership
Kuwait Oil Tankers Company (KOTC) was incorporated in 1957 by a group of pioneers who had a vision on the importance of oil as a main source of energy. In confirmation of the vision and insight of those pioneers, they decided to acquire an oil tanker. The first tanker” KAZIMAH” was acquired with an aggregate load of 49,000 tons. Over time, oil became of a great importance and the international demand for oil substantially increased. Hence, transporting oil in its crude, refined and liquefied gas forms became necessary. Accordingly, the fleet of KOTC has been upgraded.
Following the incorporation of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) in 1980, KOTC became responsible of the sector of transporting the crude oil, refined oil products and the Liquefied petroleum gas. In addition, KOTC also operates the Marine Agency Branch which is the sole agent for all the tankers calling at the Kuwaiti sea ports. KOTC also has an LPG Filling Branches in Shuaiba & Umm Al-Aish that fill liquefied gas cylinders and distributed them in all regions of Kuwait.
The Company's Fleet Vessels
KOTC owns a distinguished fleet of Ships that consists of 28 tankers, divided between 12 Very Large Crude Oil tankers, 12 different petroleum products tankers of various sizes, and 4 gigantic gas tankers. The total cargo of the fleet is 4,7 million metric tons, which is the equivalent of 339,387 million oil barrels, and the average age of the fleet is 7 years. The company was keen to modernize its fleet through building tankers that comply with the latest international designs and that have the latest technical and technological features. In addition to that, the new company's tankers are considered to be an example of the environmental friendly tankers, as they are equipped with systems to limit gas admissions from the oil cargo as a result of temperature variation and the change of weather while sailing from one port to another.
Marine Agency branch was established in 1959 and it is one of the subsidiaries of KOTC, which is in turn a subsidiary of KPC. It is also the only agency that provides services to all the tankers in the territorial waters and Kuwaiti ports.
The Marine Agency branch has obtained ISO14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 and these International Standards are renewed according to the required terms and specifications related to health, safety, and environmental issues.
The Marine Agency branch provides services for more than 1,400 tankers that visit Kuwaiti ports every year.
The Marine Agency branch is divided into 3 main departments that include several sections which cooperate to provide services for all tankers that visit Kuwaiti ports, in addition to providing services for the companys crew members.
LPG Filling Branches “Shuaiba & Um Al-Aish”
In 1960 the company was granted the right to market and distribute the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in local market as an alternative to other types of domestic fuels. In January 1962, the First Gas Filling Plant was constructed and put into operation at Shuwaikh Industrial Area with production capacity of about one million cylinders (12 kg)per year. However, with the increase in the population, it became necessary to increase production capacity to meet local market consumption. In 1985, all LPG Operations has been transferred to Shuaiba Industrial Area where New Plant was built to serve the whole market demand with idle production capacity of 6.5 million Cyl./year.
With the continued increase in the local market demand, the company arranged with State
Authorities to allocate a land at the north side of the country in order to serve the urban expansion of residential areas at the north of Kuwait. The state authority granted the company a land in Umm Al-Aish Area. Consequently, the company has signed a contract with international contractor in late 2010, to design & build a new LPG Filling Plant. In early 2015, the new plant in Umm Al-Aish area has entered into service with idle production capacity of 14.5 million Cyl./year. with such production capacities using the state-of-the-art- technologies of both plants, the market demand will satisfied till year 2030.
The company pays a lot of concern in providing assurance of quality and safety of this service to consumers in state of Kuwait.
