Two oil workers were slightly injured when a fire described as “limited” broke out in an operation site in Greater Burgan oil field, southeastern Kuwait, on Monday morning, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) announced, but production was not affected.
The workers, of a contracting company, were whisked to Al-Ahmadi hospital and their conditions are stable, said Qusai Al-Amer, KOC’s spokesman and Deputy CEO for Administrative Affairs, said in a statement.
KOC firefighters and response teams rushed to the site and succeeded in controlling the fire which “had no impact on oil production operations,” he said. Al-Amer said an investigation would be launched over the causes of the fire.
