Kuwait Petroleum International was established 1983, the international arm of Kuwait
Petroleum Corporation (KPC), under its distinctive “Q8 sails” logo, refines and markets fuel,
lubricants and other petroleum derivatives to a diverse customer base across Europe.

European countries – Italy, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and Luxemburg.
Q8 is at the forefront of developing forecourt retailing by expanding the range of goods and
services offered – serving the needs of the local communities and motorists. In some markets
this is through establishing partnerships with other companies – in the Benelux an alliance
with supermarket chain Delhaize provides a complete “mini-supermarket” service.
Opportunities to link up with other companies to provide, for example, dry-cleaning and fast
food facilities, are actively sought where they bring a clear customer benefit.
