Kuwait expects production rise at Khafji field

24 February 2010

Bader al-Khashti, managing director of Kuwait Gulf Oil Co, has said the firm expects oil production from the al-Khafji oilfield to reach 300,000 barrels per day by the end of the first quarter. 'The company is working on a big number of exploration and drilling operations in the divided zone to reach the set goals of the firm and its Saudi partner,' Bader al-Khashti was quoted as saying by Kuwaiti daily al-Seyassah. Kuwait's current oil production from the field is at 272,000 bpd, Khashti said. Khafji, which is in the Neutral Zone between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, has oil production capacity of around 550,000 bpd.
