Eastern Province

Home to the world’s largest conventional oil field, and Saudi Arabia’s largest province by size, the Eastern Province is responsible for much of the Kingdom’s oil production. It is the most important centre for heavy industry in the country and home to the world’s biggest petrochemicals cluster at Jubail, which is currently in the midst of a major expansion. Other large-scale projects at Ras Al Khair Industrial City, Al Ahsa Second Industrial City, Dammam Third Industrial City and the Sadara petrochemicals complex, as well as the recently inaugurated SATORP refinery, look set to further bolster the Eastern Province’s status as a centre for heavy industry.
