The First Oil Well in Bahrain is situated below Jebel Dukhan, and is the first oil well in the Persian Gulf. It was operated by Bahrain Petroleum Company. The oil first spurted from this well on 16th October 1931, and finally began to blow heads of oil on 2nd June 1932.

Bahrain was the first place in the Arabian side of Persian Gulf where oil was discovered, which also coincided with collapse of world pearl market.
