Saudi Arabia unveiles plans for a luxury resort on decommissioned oil platforms

Saudi Arabia has unveiled plans for a luxury resort on decommissioned oil platforms in the Persian Gulf, to be called “THE RIG.”

THE RIG. is inspired by the design of offshore oil platforms, to celebrate the legacy and heritage of Saudi Arabia's long oil and gas history. The unique hospitality and adventure experience will span a gross floor area of over 300,000 square meters, located 40km from the coastline, near Al Juraid Island and Berri Oil Field in the Arabian Gulf.

THE RIG. will seek to attract over 900,000 annual visitors by 2032. The range of hospitality, leisure, entertainment and accommodation options provided by THE RIG. include three hotels totaling 800 rooms, along with 11 restaurants, an extreme sports & adventure park, a world-class marina, and helipads.

The project will be developed by the Oil Park Development Company (OPDC).
