Description

The Middle East has some unique geology, which created the largest oil fields in the world. Oil was first discovered in Iran in 1908, almost 110 years ago. Next discoveries were made in other Middle Eastern Countries including Bahrain, where the geologist could see small hills in Saudi Arabia during the sunset. A prominent geologist at the time, said “he would drink all the oil produced in Saudi Arabia”. The largest oil field “Ghawar” is in Saudi Arabia with unique geology. This geology extends into Kuwait, where Chevron is operating in the Partitioned Neutral Zone (PNZ). During the presentation, the geology of the Arab Basin will be shown, along with the major fields and history of major discoveries.
