Kuwait University has signed a strategic research and development cooperation agreement with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).

The five-year agreement will involve research in the field of reservoirs, heavy oil and natural gas. The university will also provide support for the company’s decision-making on intellectual property protection. This will include patents and analysis of the technical and marketing value of intellectual property to assist strategic decision-making.

Kuwait U president Hussein Al Ansari said that the agreement is one of the most important agreements ever signed by university.

Kuwait Oil’s Nayef Abdullah Al-Enzi, executive vice president for drilling and technology, praised the researchers at Kuwait U and their experience in applied research and their potential for solving critical challenges facing the oil sector, both in technological development and the need to improve production and refining.
