KUWAIT CITY (Dispatches) – Fire broke out on Monday at the Kuwait Oil Co’s Greater Burgan field, injuring two workers, the state news agency KUNA reported, citing a company statement.
The fire was quickly brought under control, it said.
The two workers, who were injured in the incident, were taken to al-Ahmadi hospital for treatment and they are now in stable condition, said Qusai al-Amer, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC)’s spokesman and Deputy CEO.
Greater Burgan is Kuwait’s biggest and one of the world’s largest producing fields, according to Wood Mackenzie. It produces over 1.6 million barrels of oil a day. It is ranked second only to Saudi Arabia’s Ghawar Field. The oil field is responsible for most of Kuwait’s oil production.
Al-Amer added that an investigation committee would be formed to determine the cause of the incident.
