Kazakh giant Kashagan oilfield resumes output after accident
ASTANA Oct 7 (Reuters) - A consortium developing Kazakhstan's giant Kashagan oilfield has resumed production after an industrial accident halted work at the deposit last month, the Kazakh Oil & Gas Ministry said on Monday.
Work at the offshore field - one of the world's biggest oil finds in decades - was halted on Sept. 25 after a gas leak was detected.
Production was restarted "without complications" on Oct. 6, the ministry said in a statement.
