CCC-KGP Camp, Jubail, Saudi Arabia
On 02-08-09 Morning 9:30 AM, fire ripped through a Labour camp owned by Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) in Saudi Arabia. The camp set up by CCC to work on Saudi Aramco’s Khurasaniyah Gas Plant, about 140 km northwest of Dahran in the eastern province of the Kingdom. The fire broke out because of a leaking gas cylinder in the kitchen and company records have confirmed six deaths and 40 missing are Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Indians, Pakistanis and Filipinos. The camp is believed to cover 50km and has a currently population of around 10,000 workers, more than 400 workers were in the area of the fire. Most of those who died were sleeping at the time of the accident. They had done their night shift and were asleep when the fire engulfed their porta-cabins and other workers were at the work site. They saw the devastation that the fire wreaked only when they came back during lunch break. The Khurasaniyah Gas Plant is located nearly 7km from the residential camp. The project is being constructed by US-based Bechtel and Spain’s Technip, who employed CCC.
