Yes. Depends on role and duration but historically the gigs are very lucrative. However, Covid & low demand have forced Aramco to pull a large segment of the ex-pat community out of Damman so not sure what the “new” comp looks like. Happy to provide more context. DM if u want to talk

Very lucrative, I have seen 50-100% uplifts compared to similar U.S. based roles.
