The fire broke out after a leak at an oil field, where a well was being dug up, state news agency KUNA said, citing Kuwait Oil Company. A company spokesman said there was "no reading of any H2S (hydrogen sulphide) gas leak from the incident". The incident has not impacted KOC's production or operations.
