This person is apparently living in Saudi Aramco housing in Dhahran not on the local market and is very lucky! The Aramco housing is owned by the company and is priced in part to fall within for US tax laws. A unit in a compound outside Dhahran like this person has would cost in the $3-5,000 USD per month plus utilities.

How old is the housing in the Aramco compound? How much does it cost to play golf at the local course? How does the price of groceries compare to the U.S.? I am considering a job with Saudi Aramco. Thank You,
