The Oil Hub of Saudi Aramco

Abqaiq, which is located at the southern end of the Abqaiq oil field about 25 miles west of the Arabian Gulf, is an oil town, lying on the main road from Riyadh to Dhahran. The population is largely composed of those working for Saudi Aramco, and some resedance from Aramco Contractor Companies.
Following the discovery of the oil field in 1940, the population of Abqaiq grew rapidly. In 1995, the population was around 10,000. At the moment the population is increased to three times of 1995, and this will explain the country-expanding plan for oil production to 15million Br/day.

Is it a place to visit?

My experience in this city was work experience, the city has been built in middle of no where by Aramco Company, it’s just an oil industrial complex, and oil stations, so nothing much to see in this city.
