KOC oil leak under control

Kuwait, July 20, 2009

State-owned Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) said on Monday it had contained a leak at its biggest oil port, state news agency KUNA reported.

The leak at Mina al-Ahmadi occurred in a pipeline on Sunday morning, KUNA cited a KOC official as saying.

KOC isolated the site quickly and retrieved most of the roughly 250 barrels of leaked oil, the agency said. Opec member Kuwait pumped 2.24 million barrels per day (bpd) in June, according to a Reuters  survey.
