Dhahran, the largest community with a population of 10,000, is home to our worldwide headquarters and corporate functions. It has many modern facilities, while the older section of Dhahran is still a very attractive environment with tree-lined streets, stone houses and grass lawns.

The main Dhahran residential community is located at the site of the original Dhahran camp and contains the administration complex, health center and dental clinic. Dhahran features one of the Middle East's most challenging golf courses, and has three recreational centers with swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, a bowling alley, library and movie theater. Other activities include horseback riding at the community's farm, exercising on hike-and-bike paths, and soccer and rugby on the company fields.

Dhahran Hills is a mostly residential area, located about two miles west of Dhahran and just beyond the community’s golf course. The Dhahran Hills School (kindergarten through to Grade 5) is located in the Hills.

Dhahran’s marina and beach are just 40 minutes away at Half Moon Bay. The bay’s beautiful clear blue water and fine white sand make this a popular gathering spot for many Dhahran community residents to relax or enjoy sailing, fishing or water-skiing.

The local town of al-Khobar is a 15 to 20 minute drive from Dhahran, where you’ll find shops and restaurants.
