Awali oil settlement
Awali oil settlement is part of the Tentative list of Bahrain in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Awali oil settlement has been in place since 1934 on the spot where oil was first discovered and exploited on the Arabian Peninsula. Its type of settlement for foreign expert workers in the oil industry became an example for those in other oil producing countries. It was more inspired by European type garden cities than traditional local desert or oasis towns.
