Source: KUNA 10/28/2012, Location: Middle East

Chairman and Managing Director of Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) Sami Al-Rasheed said that work is still ongoing to extinguish a blazing oil well in Rawdtain, north of the country. The incident caused leakage of hydrogen sulfide gas mid-October.

He added in a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the equipment needed to extinguish the well already reached Kuwait from the United States last Thursday, pointing out that about 50 percent of the waste burning around the well has been completed, in addition to the processing of four pools of water for cooling and extinguishing the burning well.

He said the fire brigade in the company began cooling of the well, a prelude to extinguish and then shut down the well, indicating that conversion of about 32 oil pipelines was completed and were linked to the gathering center to be far away from the well site.
