Kuwait's oil minister says the country will shut down production for at least two weeks at the Wafra oil fields that produce around 200,000 barrels a day.

Ali al-Omair says time of the resumption of production in the fields will be decided after two weeks of "maintenance." He spoke to the state-run Kuwait News Agency on Wednesday during a visit to neighboring Qatar.
