  • Oil and gas in the capitals

    Dr. A. F. Alhajji

To date, the pipeline is among the most successful joint projects by any economic and political standards. Another set of pipelines, including the Dolphin project, is making its way through the sands of the Arabian Peninsula, contributing to the integration of the Gulf countries.
