Shaikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah – Kuwait’s 10th Ruler

The Ahmad Al-Jaber Oil & Gas Exhibition was named after Kuwait’s 10th ruler, who served as Kuwait’s Amir from 1921 to 1950. The exhibition recognizes the important historical role Sheikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah played in the shaping of modern Kuwait, for it was under his reign that oil was first discovered and exported from the country.

KOC Display Center

The original Display Center in Ahmadi has played a very important role in the history of Kuwait Oil Company. For decades, visiting delegations from around the world were taken to the Display Center as part of their visit to KOC. In addition to being an excellent source of information for matters related to the oil industry, the original Display Center has been a source of great pride for the Company, for it is where the public could come to learn about the important role KOC plays for the State of Kuwait. Over the years, the Display Center has hosted kings and queens, heads of states, diplomats from around the world, and students of all ages.

The new Sheikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah Oil & Gas Exhibition will assume the role that the original Display Center has played, and while the exhibition space may be larger, modern, and more impressive, it will still serve the same basic function: Educating the public and visitors to Kuwait about the oil industry and the important role KOC plays in that regard.
