The production cross section of dark matter at the LHC is constrained to be in order of picobarn assuming a minimal, SM singlet dark matter. However the dark sector generically can be non minimal that it might have new dark gauge interactions. The dark gauge boson can decay to SM particles via kinetic mixing. In this scenario, the dark gauge boson is produced at the LHC in association with the dark matter. Therefore the search for this particular final state is well motivated. In this talk I will discuss the current and future LHC reach for this scenario of a non minimal dark sector. I will show that the LHC at 8 TeV com energy can provide a powerful bound for the production of dark sector in this scenario.
