KPC did not give the magnitude of the spill nor its cause but said different services were investigating the incident.
"Emergency oil teams are still working to put an oil spill near Kuwait's southern Ras al-Zour area under control," the statement said, citing Seikh Talal al-Khaled al-Sabah, Kuwait's oil sector spokesman.
Ras al-Zour is where Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) is building the Middle East's largest oil refinery with a capacity of 615,000 per day and $11.5 billion worth of contracts.
