DREDGING AND PORT CONSTRUCTION IN THE MIDDLE EAST

In his introduction the author considers the chronic delays to shipping in the Gulf and lists some of the factors which should be taken into account in assessing the future. He then reviews the economic background and port development of Iran with particular emphasis on the part dredging has played in the construction of new facilities there. Port development in Iraq and Kuwait is examined briefly, and projects in Bahrain are considered. Qatar's ports at Doha and Umm Said are briefly discussed. Port Rashid, in Dubai, U.A.E., is described in detail, as is the new harbour scheme at Jebel Ali, and the dry dock at Dubai. Port developments in Abu Dhabi and Oman are reviewed while the last section covers those in Saudi Arabia, at Jeddah, Dammon, Yanbu and Jizan. In the closing paragraphs the author mentions the projects at Aqaba in Jordan and the Suez Canal.
