1. (C) For the period beginning 0500 April 10 and ending 0500
April 14, total Kuwait daily crude oil production averaged
2,405,280 barrels per day. Average production from Northern
Kuwaiti fields averaged 421,907 barrels per day for the
period.


2. (C) The average stock level for Kuwait Export Crude during
the five-day period was 6,726,632 barrels, with a peak of
7,444,479 barrels on April 14 and a low of 6,265,520 barrels
on April 11.


3. (U) Local press reports indicate that the Kuwait Oil
Company firefighting team extinguished the last oil well
burning in the Rumeila field on April 13.

contender for "Project Kuwait" to assist in the development
of Kuwait's Northern oil fields.

provided as events warrant.

e-mail to SchwartzTPKuwait@state.sgov.gov.
