The whole UFO case report:
James McCampbell:
Nov. 9 - Dec. 14, 1978; vicinity of Kuwait
A senior official of the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) reported to the embassy that the UFO ‘...which first appeared over the northern oil fields seemingly did strange things to KOC’s automatic pumping equipment. This equipment is designed to shut itself down when there is some failure which may seriously damage the petroleum gathering and transmission system and it can only be restarted manually. At the time of the UFO's appearance the pumping station automatically shut itself down and when the UFO vanished the system started itself up again. Eight UFOs were sighted between Nov. 9 and Dec. 14,1978, in the vicinity of an oil-gathering center near Kuwait City, Kuwait. The government appointed a committee of experts from the Kuwait Institute For Scientific Research to investigate. An Institute representative, Ratib Abu Id, told U.S. embassy officials that they had rejected the idea of espionage devices and did not know enough about the subject to rule out spaceships.” presents two U.S. government (U.S. Department of State) documents that pertain to the November/December 1978 Kuwait UFO flap.
