AMEC (UK), the international engineering and project management company, have announced that they have been awarded the remediation contract, which will be funded by the United Nations Compensation Committee (UNCC) with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). KOC will act as the managing agent and contracting entity.

This contract is aimed at the remediation of the KOC oilfields damaged during the 1990-1991 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with KOC by mobilising our global environmental and project management expertise to support this important project,” said Dr. Hisham Mahmoud, President of AMEC’s Environment & Infrastructure business. “We recognise the significance of this project to Kuwait and the United Nations, and are committed to its success.”

“I am delighted that the unique combination of our long term oil and gas presence in the country, alongside our specialist environment and infrastructure expertise has led to this award,” said Ross Gibson, Regional Director for AMEC’s Middle East & North Africa region. “We are thrilled to be able to use our global remediation skills to help our customer and Kuwait.”
