Combined Group Contracting Co (CGC) has been awarded a contract to build 10 fuel stations for Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC). 

Worth $51.3m (KWD15.47m), the contract will see CGC building the fuel stations across Kuwait. 

The 10 fuelling units are part of KNPC's 19-station package, with the contract for the remaining nine stations to be concluded at a later date, Basem Al-Issa, deputy chief executive officer for support services at KNPC, said. 

KNPC's chief executive officer, Mohammad Al-Mutairi, and CGC's vice-chairman, Raad Al-Abdullah, signed the contract. 

Al-Mutairi reiterated the significance of implementing the contract as scheduled, since the deal was "of paramount significance to the company's expansion", and in line with Kuwait's urban needs, particularly in new residential cities. 

The stations would be developed using modern architectural influences, and provide integrated services as well, Al-Mutairi added, according to Kuwait's state news agency, KUNA
