Kuwait brings more Jurassic gas on line

KUWAIT CITY, January 29, 2018 – Kuwait Oil Company has launched production of gas and light oil at the West Al Raudhatain early production facility (EPF) in the Raudhatain field, local media reported on Sunday.


State news agency Kuna said Bakheet Al Rashidi, the country’s minister of oil and minister of electricity and water, presided over a ceremony on Saturday to mark the launch.

The West Al Raudhatain EPF is the second of three Jurassic Gas Project facilities scheduled to come on line this year. A first, located at the Umm Niqa and Sabriyah fields and built by Schlumberger under a 2016 deal, became operational earlier this month.

The third EPF, located in the East Raudhatain field, is slated to come on line in the “coming months,” according to a statement from KOC cited by Kuna.
