Kuwait Sets Oil Well On Fire After Gas Leak

No one was injured in the gas leak accident, said state news agency KUNA.



Kuwait Oil Company set fire to an oil well in the north of the OPEC member state on Wednesday to get rid of gas leaking from the site, state news agency KUNA said.

The state-owned company said levels of the hydrogen sulphide gas from a well at the Rawdatain oil field close to the Iraqi border were “far below danger levels”, KUNA said in an SMS alert.

The company said earlier on Wednesday that there had been an oil and gas leak at the well during drilling operations and that no one had been injured.

Major oil exporter Kuwait produces around three million barrels of crude a day.
