Persian Gulf’s First Oil Well September 14, 2014

oil-wellThe initial oil flow rate was 400 barrels per hour. The well is situated below Jebel Dukhan, dubbed the Mountain of Smoke, which, at a height of 134 m (450 ft), is the highest point of the island. Its name comes from the misty haze, which frequently surrounds it on a hot and humid day. Bahrain was the first place on the Arabian side of the Persian Gulf where oil was discovered. It couldn’t have come at a better time for Bahrain as it roughly coincided with the collapse of the world pearl market.
