Kuwait Says 'maintenance' Forcing Closure of Oil Fields

Kuwait's oil minister says the country will shut down production for at least two weeks at the Wafra oil fields that produce around 200,000 barrels a day. Ali al-Omair says time of the resumption of production in the fields will be decided after two weeks of "maintenance." He spoke to the state-run Kuwait News Agency on Wednesday during a visit to neighboring Qatar.
