Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have restarted production at the Al-Khafji oil field in the neutral zone between the two countries, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency reported, citing a statement by the acting CEO of the Kuwait Gulf Oil Company.

The official Twitter account of the company posted an update yesterday, saying (via Google Translate) “Congratulations on the occasion of the resumption of production in joint abundance operations.”

An earlier report by Argus News from late June said Saudi Arabia and Kuwait had plans to restart both oilfields in the neutral zone—Al-Khafji and Wafra—this month.

Al-Khafji is one of four offshore and one onshore field located in the neutral zone between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Of these, just two fields—Al-Khafji and Wafra—pumped half a million barrels daily until 2015. (RT)
