Aḥmadī, Al-

Kuwait
      town, southern Kuwait. The oasis town was built after 1946 with the development of the oil field in which it is located. Al-Aḥmadī is the headquarters of the Kuwait Oil Company. Pipelines link it with Mīnāʾ (port) al-Aḥmadī, on the Persian Gulf to the east, where a refinery and tanker terminals are located. In 1991 the area's oil wells were set on fire by Iraqi troops, causing extensive damage that was subsequently repaired (see Persian Gulf War). Al-Aḥmadī has several gardens and numerous sports facilities, including a football (soccer) stadium where the local team competes. Pop. (1985) 26,899; (1995 prelim.) 21,504.
