Photos of Dhahran and Ras Tanura

There are two photo albums on Webshots by cindyandrob showing the Aramco compounds of Dhahran and Ras Tanura. The photo collections are available to view freely at webshots so I am asumming they won’t mind me posting a link from here.

Ras Tanura Saudi Arabia

A few things have changed since the photos as the compound was spruced up for the king’s visit in early 2008, but for the most part these photos show what it looks like here. As you can see Dhahran has become an artificial oasis since the days 75 years ago when it was started on the Dammam dome where oil was struck.
