Yemen's Ministry of Oil and Minerals has signed an MOU with Kuwait Energy Company to study Yemen's prospects in developing the country's natural gas reserves and optimising them for the benefit of Yemeni people.
Under the terms of the MOU, Kuwait Energy Company will advise the ministry on the most practical use and application of the country's natural resources to maximise revenue and increase employment. Kuwait Energy Company is expected to conduct the six months study at no cost to the Yemeni government.
The MOU was signed by Yemen's Deputy Oil and Minerals minister Ahmed Dares and Kuwait Energy CEO Sara Akbar.
