Abqaiq

Arabic �Buqayq, � town, eastern Saudi Arabia, about 25 miles (40 km) west of the Persian Gulf. It is situated in the southern end of the Abqaiq oil field, one of the largest and most productive in the kingdom. Abqaiq grew rapidly following the discovery of the field in 1940. By 1950 the town was the southern terminus of the Tapline (Trans-Arabian Pipeline), a 1,068-mile- (1,718-kilometre-) long pipeline to Sayda (Sidon), Lebanon; Oil, oil oil... it's such a dirty unfriendly bore. Every country involved in the production of oil is aggressive. We should all start investing our money in Wine and running our cars on that instead. Has anybody thought of that little gem before? I think not. OPEQ could be renamed WinePEQ.... Don't you love it? I bet you do!!

Any thoughts drifters?
