Background

Offshore Magazine reported on April 25, 2018 that Al Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) has contracted "Saipem to perform engineering, construction, installation, and commissioning of a new crude transmission line offshore Saudi Arabia/Kuwait."[1]

Since 2018, there have been no updates on the pipeline project, it is presumed to be shelved.

In May of 2020, S&P Global reported that Kuwait and Saudi Arabia agreed to stop production from Al Khafji because "there are simply no buyers."[2]
