Kuwait to finish cleaning up oil spill this week- report

Kuwait will finish cleaning up a crude oil spill in the country’s southern waters in the Gulf this week, a Kuwaiti newspaper report said on Sunday, quoting the country’s oil minister. Essam al-Marzouq told the al-Rai newspaper that no more patches of oil have been found and that Kuwait was working on clearing up those near the shore. He did not give a reason for the spill. On Saturday Kuwait said various services were investigating the incident but did not give the magnitude of the spill near Kuwait’s southern Ras al-Zour area nor its cause. Ras al-Zour is where Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) is building the Middle East’s largest oil refinery, with a processing capacity of 615,000 barrels per day and $11.5 billion worth of contracts. Saudi Arabia and Kuwait jointly operate fields in a shared area known as the Neutral Zone. The Khajfi Joint Operations (KJO) said in a statement on the Saudi Press Agency early on Sunday that its facilities were safe and were clear of a spill “which (media) reports said was due to an oil tanker.”
