Monitoring Hydrocarbons Levels in Al-Riqa Urban Area (Kuwait) Using Modern Environmental Techniques: Investigating the Effect of Petroleum Downstream Industries on the Outdoor Air Quality

S. M. Al-Salem, A. A. Al-Fadhlee, A. A. Al-Haddad


Al-Riqa urban area is one of the major residential estates in Al-Ahmadi governorate (Kuwait) which is known for its adjacent petroleum facilities. The main objective of this communication is to assess the outdoor air quality of the investigated area in terms of Hydrocarbon levels in the ambient. The data analyzed was gathered from a continuous monitoring station situated in Al-Riqa area.

A series of concentration roses were established in order to study the behavior of Total Hydrocarbons, non-Methane Hydrocarbons and Methane gases in the ambient.

45o spans were used to execute the roses coupled with wind roses to study the predominant winds affecting the area.

The Southern downstream facilities (i.e. Three refineries belt, Petrochemical complexes, Cottage and small industries etc Ö.) were identified as main contributors to the total ambient load of Al-Riqa.   

Keywords: Al-Riqa urban area, Kuwait, outdoor air quality, Petrochemical, Total Hydrocarbons.
