Kuwait City and Oilfields in Kuwait – November 24th, 200929.3N 48.0E
To the north, Bubiyan Island is separated from the mainland in the northeast by the channel Khawr Abd Allah and from the mainland in the southwest by the channel Khawr as Sabiyah. The water currents can be seen flowing through the channels, around the large island and into the gulf.
West of the island, an area stands out as slightly lighter as compared to the surrounding dark grey landscape. This area contains several oilfields, including the Ar Rawdatain Oilfield and the Sabriyah Oilfield. The white lines extending from the oilfields towards Kuwait City are paved roads.
