Growing up in Qatar 1950-1962

Post Posted: Sun Jun 20, 2010 8:51 pm

I was brought up in Dukhan from 1950. We first lived in the prefabs by the top gate (No76 I think). We then moved down to a large stone built bungalow by the Catholic church Nissan hut. We all went to the Club on a Friday for our curry lunch. A weekly trip to the commiserriate(?) fror our fresh fruit, brought overland from who knows where. More memories to share with anyone who was there about the same time. Lots of photos and some 8mm silent movies of out there as well.

I have just come across a Confidential report (dated Sept 1958) of all the oil wells, degassing stations, rock strata etc of Iraq, Qatar and South Arabia. Can anyone confirm if wells 41 to 64 are still in operation? or if Fahahil is still in operation?
This bound copy headed IPC and associated companies of Supporting Data for Exploration and Production Conference is from my fathers paperwork, handed down to me. It is archive material and would be best kept for reference in a library.

I left Qatar in 1997 and still have contacts there (in Dukhan which was the location of my home golf club) so can probably find out if wells 41 to 64 and Fahahil station are operational.
If my memory serves me correctly, I think Fahahil is still operational.
Could take a day or two as it's now the weekend over there.
