PIF announces 'THE RIG.' project
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 16 - 10 - 2021

The Public Investment Fund (PIF) announced Saturday the launch of "THE RIG.", a new tourism project. Inspired by offshore oil platforms, "THE RIG." will be located in the Arabian Gulf and will span a combined total area of more than 150,000 square meters and provide a multitude of hospitality offerings, adventures, and aquatic sporting experiences.
"THE RIG." is a project in the tourism and entertainment sector, one of PIF's key strategic sectors, and is expected to be a significant value-add to the local economy.
Additionally, to ensure the sustainable preservation of the environment in the project's vicinity, the project will follow leading global standards and best practices, further supporting the Kingdom's broader efforts on environmental protection.
This project is a unique tourism attraction, expected to attract tourists from around the world, while being especially popular with citizens and residents of the GCC countries in the region.
"THE RIG." will feature a number of touristic attractions, including three hotels, world-class restaurants, helipads, and a range of adventurous activities, including extreme sports.
"THE RIG." is in line with PIF's strategy 2021-2025 to drive innovation in Saudi Arabia's tourism and entertainment sectors, providing promising development opportunities to achieve economic diversification in line with the Saudi Vision 2030 objectives.
To support Saudi Arabia's efforts to become a leading global tourist destination, PIF has established several major projects and companies in various regions within the country, including the Red Sea Development Company, Alsoudah Development Company and the Cruise Saudi Company. — SPA
