EQUATE Petrochemical Company and Kuwait University's College of Engineering and Petroleum signed on Thursday March 6, 2008, a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) to strengthen and boost ties in academic and industrial fields.

The MoC was signed by EQUATE's Vice-President of Technical Services Mahmoud Al-Qattan and the college's Dean Dr. Taher Al-Sahhaf with the purpose of facilitating current and future collaboration between the two sides.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, Al-Qattan outlined EQUATE's history since its establishment 10 years ago, noting that it has become one of Kuwait's most successful private industry companies.

He added that EQUATE was the “Winner of the Kuwait CSR Award for the Industry and Energy Sector for the year 2007,” and was also previously recognized as the Gulf's best private company in terms of hiring nationals who comprise 59 percent of the company's manpower.

While saying EQUATE's seeks to benefit from the graduates of College of Engineering and Petroleum, Al-Qattan noted that this MoC was only the beginning of collaboration in relevant fields.
