KOC boosts production with launch of JPF 4 and JPF 5

The Kuwait Oil Company has commenced operations at its latest Jurassic production stations, JPF 4 and JPF 5, located in northern Kuwait. These stations are set to contribute 320 million cubic feet per day of associated gas and 100 thousand barrels per day of light oil, effectively increasing production capacity by approximately 50% from the current 630 million cubic feet to an anticipated 950 million cubic feet in the near future.
