Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

KUWAIT: The re­sump­tion of oil pro­duc­tion from oil­fields jointly op­er­ated by Saudi Ara­bia and Kuwait will take time and may face ob­sta­cles, the chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Kuwait Oil Com­pany (KOC) said yes­ter­day. “The joint Khafji and Wafra fields... will need some re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion be­fore they re­sume pro­duc­tion,” Ja­mal Jaa­far told re­porters in Kuwait. He said bring­ing back the oil­fields “will face some tech­ni­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive difficulties but Saudi Ara­bia and Kuwait are able to over­come them.” The fields are in the Neu­tral Zone that lies between both coun­tries.
