Introducing Dhahran

Dhahran is the home of Saudi Arabia’s oil industry and the base of Aramco, the granddaddy of Saudi oil companies.

Much of Dhahran is like an exclusive club: a small and self-contained American city, which consists of the Aramco compound, shops, residential areas and the University of Petroleum & Minerals.

If you want a tour of the compound (and a peek at the famous No 7 pipeline), you should contact the Aramco PR department in advance.
