LUXEMBOURG, May 17 (KUNA) — Kuwait Petroleum International (Q8) has scored major milestones in Europe’s energy market by opening its first highway site and its largest station in the world in Luxembourg.
The service station is located in Capellen on the busy trans-European E25 motorway in Luxembourg very close to the border with Belgium and not far from the borders with Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
The opening ceremony held at the huge site last Thursday was attended by the CEO of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation Nizar Al-Adsani, Kuwait Petroleum International President Bakheet Al-Rashidi, Kuwait ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg and the EU, Dharar Abdul Razzak Razzooqi who was accompanied by Mohammad Khalid Al Huwailah and Sami Shammas from the embassy in Brussels.
In attendance at the ceremony were government officials from Luxembourg and stakeholders in the energy sector as well as representatives of the media.
Addressing the gathering, Al-Rashidi noted that the Capellen service station is also the third biggest motorway site in the world.
“This is a tremendous achievement, and will be the beginning, we hope, of more ties between Kuwait and Luxembourg,” said the KPI president.
“Luxembourg may be a small country in size, but just like Kuwait, it stands tall on the international scene. Not only it is the second richest economy in the world, it is on one of the world’s best performers in environmental protection. KPI will play its part in maintaining Luxembourg’s culture of showing respect to the environment without making our products expensive to our consumers,” he added…..
