CALGARY, Alberta May 25 (Reuters) - Canadian Natural Resources Ltd has cut production at its Kirby South oil sands project to 12,000 barrels per day from 30,000 bpd due to a wildfire raging in northeastern Alberta, a company spokeswoman said on Monday.

The reduced output at Kirby South is in addition to the 80,000 bpd of production shut at CNRL's Primrose project over the weekend.
