Kuwait plans to restart crude oil production in the Neutral Zone in 2020

13 Jan 2020

Kuwait expects to resume crude oil production from the Neutral Zone shared with Saudi Arabia at the end of 2020 and to reach a production level of 250,000 bbl/d. In 2019, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia signed an agreement to end a 5-year dispute over shared resources, allowing a restart of production at the Khafji and Wafra fields, which used to produce 500,000 bbl/d before production was suspended. The agreement will also allow Kuwait to develop its share of the Dorra gas field.
