Kuwait has traditionally produced and exported mainly medium to light crude since the 1950s. Now KOC is pushing for more involvement of international oil companies in developing its heavy oil assets. But why is Kuwait shifting to heavy oil production?
They ask the question, but they don't supply and answer. Most of us beleive it is PO, but the reporter never gives an answer.
I thought thought that funny too. I suppose the reader has to figure this out for themselves, since they admit they've passed peak:
"Burgan by itself won't be enough because we've exhausted that, with its production capability now much lower than what it used to be"
I wonder though how Exxon is going to get employees to clear those mine fields.
