United Oil Projects Company was incorporated in the early eighties under the name of Kuwait Chemical Manufacturing Company, interpreting the pioneer vision of its founders to meet both local and international market requirements for specialized chemicals.
In 2005, the company’s management adopted a reformed strategy for the development of its activities to adroitly meet and accommodate the frequent economic transformations and developments, as well as to foster its returns through seizing available investment opportunities in the energy sector, which has witnessed a profound growth during the years. As a result the Company was subsequently re-established as United Oil Projects with an authorized and paid up capital of 10 Million Kuwaiti Dinars approximately USD 35.6 million.
