Oil well fire. Camels grazing in front of an oil well fire in the Rumeilah oil field in southern Iraq. The fire is being fought by the Kuwaiti Wild Well Killers (KWWK), a division of the Kuwait Oil Company. The Rumeilah field is one of Iraq's biggest oil fields with an estimated reserve of five billion barrels of oil. The oil wells were set ablaze by retreating Iraqi forces during the invasion by coalition forces in March 2003.
