Dhahran KFUPM LOCATION City of Dhahran Eastern Province Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
KFUPM LOCATION KFUPM is located in Dhahran, between the headquarters of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (SAUDI ARAMCO) and the Dhahran Air Base. It is situated on top of the geologic dome, or anticline, where the first petroleum was discovered in Dammam Well No. 7, located about half a kilometer from the campus. A number of producing oil wells were at one time actually on University land
KFUPM LOCATION The campus is situated near the Arabian Gulf. About 7 km from the town of Al-Khobar. The port city of Dammam, capital of the Eastern Province, is only 20 km away. The oil refinery at Ras Tanura is 70 km from the campus. The island of Bahrain, an independent kingdom some 35 km from the Saudi coastline, can be seen from the campus during clear weather. The oil-producing town of Abqaiq is located 70 km west. the ancient oasis of Al-Hasa is situated about 130 km south of the University campus.
