Fire at Kuwaiti refinery; exports unaffected

A Kuwaiti National Petroleum Company official says a fire at the 415,000 barrel per day Mina Al-Ahmadi refinery has not affected production or exports.
The official Kuwait News Agency quotes Mohammad Al-Ajmi as saying that the fire broke out in one of the refineries reservoirs, but was extinguished after about two hours early Wednesday.
Al-Ajami, who is KNPC's spokesman, said the refinery is "working at its full capacity."
