Before the refinery and the BP township  were built, Ghadir Bay was home to a community of fishermen. As the refinery project gathered pace the fishing community was relocated to the east of Ghadir to a new settlement created for them which became known as Al Khaisa. Nick Ward  sent in these pictures which give you a glimpse of the before and after of Ghadir Bay.  

 

 Phil Worral has also sent in some "Before and After" pictures which can be seen at this link Phil Worral
