roots research - ras tanura

was doing some research on the history of saudi tonight.
interesting tidbit. Aramco was actually started by Standard Oil of California SOCal (today's chevron) in 1933. The arabian oil industry started with Californian entrepeneurs, not Texans!

Also found my home town (Ras Tanura)on the wikipedia.
I actually grew up on the world's largest oil refinery. I totally forgot about that.

here's a link to a google pic of my hometown. map
