The city was famous for the pearls that were available in the sea bed. But due to its location near the oil fields, it was chosen as a site for setting up the world's largest petrochemical complex.
Today Jubayl in Saudi Arabia has 19 major factories and 136 ancillary units. These factories produce steel, aluminum, fertilizers, etc. The whole industrial area falls under the governance of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC).
