Kuwait’s port authority has resumed operations at the Shuwaikh, Doha and Shuaiba ports on Thursday after weather conditions improved, the state news agency (KUNA) reported.

The Authority had temporarily halted shipping at the ports because of bad weather earlier in the day.

 Oil ports were unaffected by the bad weather, a spokesman for Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) said.

Tanker shipments continued as normal with no tankers scheduled to enter or exit Kuwait’s oil ports, except for one gas tanker due Thursday afternoon.

No decision on that tanker had been taken so far, he said.
