Since the 1960s an industry for the production of ammonia and nitrogen fertilizers have been existing in Kuwait. It has constantly adopted to the latest developments in technology and uses Kuwait's Natural gas as its feedstock. Kuwait, represented by Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC) has not only established a firm footing for itself in ammonia and urea marketing at home, but has also set about establishing external affiliates for the production of a wider range of chemical fertilizers. The location of such affiliates in various geographical regions makes it easier for PIC to supply its markets.
Petrochemical Industries Company K.S.C (PIC) was incorporated by an Amiri decree on July 23, 1963. By virtue of that decree, the first chemical fertilizer complex both in Kuwait and the region, comprising of ammonia, urea, ammonium sulphate, and sulphuric acid production was completed in 1966 at the Shuaiba industrial area.
Later, the company's industrial capacity was expanded with the addition of a further three ammonia plants and two urea plants.
In 1980, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation was formed by an Amiri decree number 6 in that year, as the holding company for the Kuwaiti oil sector and all shares in PIC were transferred to it.
