Established in 1990 with a capital of KD 1,200,000 (equaling US$ 4 Million), its capital was raised to become KD. 10,200,000 (equaling US$ 35 million) after conducting several pioneering projects.
 
“Nouf” is fully owned by Mr. Khalid Yousuf Al-Marzouq and his sons. It was set up with the aim of managing real estate projects and supervising them.
 
The US “Bechtel” company deemed fit to grant Mr. Khalid Yousuf Al-Marzouq the sole agency for her works in Kuwait, at beginnings of 1990s, then to extend cooperation to “Nouf” Co. in undertaking Oil Projects, of which the extinguishing of Oil Wells fires was the most significant right after the liberation of Kuwait.
 
The Al-Awda Project:
 
The Al-Awda Project ('The Return") was the first phase of the fast-track restoration of the Kuwait oil production facilities damaged or destroyed during the Iraqi invasion andsubsequent war.
 
Al-Awda's two objectives were, firstly, to support the fire-fighting operation by supplying equipment, manpower and expertise in engineering, construction, planning and administration, and secondly, to assist in the restoration of production facilities to enable the export of oil and refined products for local consumption.
 
The first Project personnelarrived in Kuwait on March 6^f 1991 with the Project witnessing the fastest mobilization of equipment and personnel in Bechtel history. Over 9,000 personnel were mobilized in under seven months from over 32 different countries - the vast majority fromthe Philippines, Thailand Indonesia, United States, United Kingdom, and Kuwait itself.
 
Twenty-seven international fire-fighting teams worked 10-14 hours per day, seven days per week to control the 647 burning or gushing wells. The enormous effortwas accomplished in eight months - much less than the 2-3 years many had initially predicted.
 
 
The Al-Tameer Project:
 
With the snuffing of the last burning well on November 6, 1991 in a ceremony presided over by His Highness the Amir SheikhJabber Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, the Al-Awda Project came to a close and a new phase opened on the effort to restore Kuwait's heavily damaged oil and associated facilities.
 
The Al-Tameer Project (“the Reconstruction"), being managed by KuwaitOil Company with assistance from Bechtel, and it encompassed the country's entire crude oil production and export capabilities.
 
The Project involved assisting in upstream crude oil well drilling and repair and refurbishing the gas / oil gatheringcenters, booster stations, storage tanks, and export facilities. An important part of the job was the clean up and treatment of 250 oil lakes containing about 20 million barrels of weathered crude oil.
 
“Nouf” Real Estate for General Trading and Contracting Co. along with Bechtel undertook the infrastructure work for the Oil Sector, after all the damage it went through on the hands of Iraqi forces.
