Kuwait is in talks with five major oil companies to help boost crude production and develop some of its oilfields including Burgan, the world's second largest, a move that has faced fierce political opposition in the past.The plan is part of efforts to meet Kuwait's target of producing 4 million barrels of oil per day by 2020 .Kuwait's oil production comes mainly from a few mature fields, dominated by the Burgan field in the south of the country. Kuwait's current capacity is around 3.25 million bpd, with KOC's share at around 3 million bpd. ExxonMobil, Chevron and BP have all previously discussed technical service agreements with Kuwait.Total had looked at working with Kuwait on enhanced oil recovery.
