Photographic Memory: Tightening the wellhead at Dammam No. 15
From eight decades ago, a Saudi employee hard at work in an area that now sits within the grounds of KFUPM.
In this early 1940s image, a Saudi employee tightens the wellhead of Dammam No. 15 (initial production: September 7, 1939, at 1,625 barrels). The well was located in Dhahran within the grounds of King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, near the mosque.
