Fire erupts at Kuwait's largest oil field, two injured
The injured workers were in stable condition and receiving treatment at a nearby hospital, according to the state-run KUNA news agency, citing Qusai al-Amer, the Kuwait Oil Company spokesman.
The blaze at the Great Burgan Field in the southeastern desert of Kuwait, which produces over 1.6 million barrels of oil a day, did not impact production, the report said.
Kuwait, a nation home to 4.1 million people, has the world's sixth-largest known oil reserves. Most of the country's production comes from a single field, Burgan, which ranked second only largest producing field to Saudi Arabia's Ghawar Field.
