KUWAIT -- Kuwait Energy announced a new exploration success with their West Ahmad-1X oil well, located in Area A in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt, adjacent to the Shukheir North West Field.

This is the fourth exploration success in the Area A concession, and the 17th discovery in Egypt for Kuwait Energy since 2008.  Kuwait Energy Chief Operations Officer, Mohammad Alhowqal, said: “This is another great success in a mature field that has been producing since 1960.
