Saudi Arabia Discovers Gas in Red Sea
Saudi Arabia has announced the discovery of a gas field in the Red Sea, north of Dhuba Port in Tabuk.
Arab News has reported that gas production from the Tabuk region would start from Madyan field next year. Gas will be pumped through a pipeline to Dhuba Port and an electricity plant and a distribution network would be established in the industrial region of Dhuba.

Aramco began its mission for discovering oil and gas in the region several years ago by conducting aerial and seismic surveys.
