Arabian American Oil Company. Exploring for oil in Saudi Arabia.

New York, Aramco, February 1959.

560 x 430 mm. Folding poster with several black-and-white photographic illustrations.


Third edition. Scarce Aramco poster on oil exploration in Arabia. Featuring pictures taken by Aramco employees, it presents the work of exploration parties searching for oil in the deserts of eastern Saudi Arabia. Acknowleding this to be a strenuous process, the poster mentions the "five years of effort and disappointment" before oil was struck in commercial quantities in 1938, and shows an image of the frugal camp of the 1935 pioneer party.

Occasional light browning along folding lines.
