KPC Will Be Responsible For The Disbursement Of Road Allowance For Employees
Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) from now on will be responsible for the disbursement of road allowance for employees working at Al-Khafji joint oil fields, an affiliate of Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). The allowance will be included in the budget of KPC starting from fiscal year 2018/2019, which begins next April, reports Al-Anba daily.
Informed sources disclosed that the allowance will not be part of the budget of Ministry of Oil, and Cabinet has since approved of the ministry’s request to allot KD 4 million for that purpose each year. The same sources noted the ministry used to pay the allowance based on an agreement signed in 1990 to encourage citizens to work at Al-Khafji. He reiterated the value of road allowance ranges from KD 150 to KD 450 per employee, according to occupational status.
