KOC Chairman Sami Al-Rushaid and company officials received the three ministers upon their arrival at the site of the burning well, (technically known as RA-484).

Ayyad Al-Kanderi, the head of the team tasked with putting out the fire, informed the ministers about the process to extinguish the blazes since start of the leakage.

He declared that production at the oil sites in northern Kuwait restored the pre-accident level of output, 670,000 barrels per day.

The team involved in the operation has reached "a spot close to the head of the burning well after removal of most of the debris and ending the cooling process," Al-Kanderi explained.
