Oil & Gas Fields

 

Wafra Joint Operations (WJO)

KGOC is responsible for exploration, development and production in the Onshore Partitioned Zone. Oil was discovered in this area in 1954 in the first well drilled in the Wafra Field.

Oil and Gas Fields in this area include:

  • South Umm Ghudair (SUG)
  • Wafra
  • South Fuwaris (SF)
  • Humma
  • ARQ

Two types of crude oil are produced from PZ Fields: Ratawi Crude, which has 24 ̊ API Gravity, and Eocene Crude, 18 ̊ API Gravity.


Khafji Joint Operations (KJO)

KGOC is responsible for exploration and production in the Offshore Divided Zone, in water depths of 100 to 150 feet, shared by Kuwait and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first discovery in this area was made in 1960 with the drilling of Khafji Field Well #1.

Oil and Gas Fields in this area include:

  • Khafji
  • Lulu
  • Hout
  • Dorra

Oil production from Khafji Field is comprised of two qualities; Hout Crude (Ratawi Formation) of 32 API and Khafji Crude (Other Formations) of 28 API.

Lulu Field has been delimited by four wellbores and is under evaluation for further development.

The Hout Field is presently shut-in. Evaluation for pressure maintenance is underway.

Field Development Plan (FDP) for Dorra Field has been prepared.
