International Outlook: GLOBAL WRAPUP

KUWAIT

After early delays, the pace of fire fighting in the oil fields is picking up. About 80 of Kuwait's sabotaged wells have been brought under control, and crews are now capping about three a day. At that rate, all of the 500-plus wells that are burning or spewing huge jets of oil may be choked off by yearend. By that time, Kuwait could be exporting 250,000 barrels of crude and petroleum products daily, according to OPEC Listener, a U. S.-based oil-analysis service. But it will take until 1993 to reach the prewar export level of 1.5 million barrels a day and restore Kuwait's role as a top global supplier.EDITED BY JOHN PEARSON
