Key figures that will underpin the growth of Kuwait's energy and infrastructure sectors over the next 5 years:

$30 billion - a series of major oil, gas and petrochemical projects are expected to be tendered in Kuwait from 2011-13. The fourth refinery and the Clean Fuels projects stand out as two of the projects to watch out for due to their large deal values and the resulting opportunities on offer.

$90 billion - value of capital expenditure in Kuwait up to 2016. $38 billion has been allocated for upstream projects and $36 billion on downstream schemes. Kuwait is now one of the most active projects market in the GCC with significant investment planned in oil & gas production and refining schemes.

32 projects - identified for PPP development including a power plant, metro, rapid transport link, hospitals, privatisation of the post office and a zoo.
