Kuwait’s Ministry of Oil on Sunday announced that the first shipment of Al Khafji crude oil from joint operations in the neutral zone shared with Saudi Arabia has been exported after about a five-year break.

The shipment was loaded on to the Kuwaiti tanker, Dar Salwa, on Saturday and Sunday, 4 and 5 April 2020, the ministry said in a tweet on Sunday.

Last February, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia started trial production from the joint operations after they reached an agreement last year to resume production.

Recently, the Kuwaiti minister of oil, Khaled Al Fadhel, said that Dar Salwa tanker will head to Asia carrying two million barrels of crude.
