3.(C) Explanatory Comments:

Wafra Joint Operations refer to onshore concessions in
Saudi-Kuwait divided zone operated by Saudi Arabian Texaco
(SAT). R/B refers to the two producing reservoirs -- Ratawi
and Burgan.

KOC is Kuwait Oil Company
KNPC is Kuwait National Petroleum Corporation

KGOC is the Kuwaiti successor to Arabian Oil Company (AOC),
which previously operated a concession in the offshore
portions of the Saudi-Kuwait divided zone -- AOC still
operates the fields under a service agreement.

KEC refers to Kuwait Export Crude, the country's export
blend. Salt PTB refers to pounds of salt per thousand
barrels of crude oil.
