Kuwait has the sixth-largest oil reserves in the world and is one of OPEC’s top oil-producing and oil-exporting countries. Oil export revenue make up half of Kuwait’s GDP and 95 percent of state revenues.  The Kuwait Petroleum Corporation plans to increase oil production capacity to 4 million barrels per day by 2020. Kuwait consumes a very small part of this oil domestically: Last year, 87 percent of Kuwaiti oil was exported.
