A Sulfur gas leak took place while drilling an oil well Wednesday afternoon at Al-Roudhatain oil field, said security sources noting that the annoying smell of sulfur gas reached s far as Kuwaiti city as reported by many citizens and expatriates.
Further, the sources highlighted that Abdali firemen and KOC emergency teams were still working hard to contain the leak at the time this report was made and that firemen were trying to burn out the leaking gas to prevent it from spreading and traveling far.
Notably, inhaling sulfur gas may cause dizziness, vomiting and diarrhea, stressed security and health sources noting that residents within a 4 kilometer diameter round the oil field was evacuated.
Commenting on the incident, KOC’s deputy managing director for exploration, Khald Al-Sumaitti stressed that all needed efforts were being exerted to control the leak either by stopping it or by burning out the leaking gases. he also stressed that despite reports that the gas has reached as far as 80 kilometers, gas density in the air has not reached dangerous levels.
On his part, chairman of the Green Line Group, Khaled Al-Hajri criticized the statements made by Al-Summaitti in which he focused on resuming oil production rather than the environmental effect of the gas and its possible effect on man’s health. he also warned that this type of gas has dangerous effects on respiratory systems and kidneys. he also advised the public to stay indoor and tightly close windows unless the gas already leaks inside the house and it needs to be ventilated to avoid the gas’s toxic effects.
