A "limited fire" broke out on Monday at the Kuwait Oil Co's Greater Burgan field, injuring two workers but with no impact on production, the state news agency KUNA reported, citing a company statement.

The fire was quickly brought under control, it said.

Greater Burgan is Kuwait's biggest and one of the world's largest producing fields, according to Wood Mackenzie.
