encompasses nature reserves, resorts and a port. The ultimate
objective is to make Boubyan a major seaport which would act as a

Boubyan Island presently accounts for about five percent of the country's land area during low tide and contains military outposts and a flourishing ecosystem. The multi-million dollar project is scheduled to be implemented in three segments, of which the first will be subdivided into three parts.
Three steps, 60 anchors
The first part will include laying in place advanced
infrastructure, treating the area's soil and creating railroad
links. Part two will encompass the construction of a port which
will feature no less than 16 anchors; while the final part of the
segment will feature marine drilling, widening channels and other
aspects of the construction work.
Meanwhile the subsequent phases of the work will include the creation of a number of additional anchors which will eventually bring the overall total to 60. The Boubyan Island Development Project will undoubtedly serve to enhance Kuwait's standing as a major hub for commerce in the region.
