The current proven and recoverable reserves of oil in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are 266 billion barrels. However, what remains hidden in the subsurface is far more than what has already has been discovered.

As was said, I think Friday / Saturday is weekend over there so would make sense for them to keep the lights off. Though there were plenty of times that BK had a seemingly 24 hour schedule. Guess we'll have to see if that happens for KT too.

Very soon in fact, there has just been a jump right now!

Latest structure progress summary:

-Level 12 has emerged out of the central core jump-form = Level 13 of the central core has been cast; rebar preparation for Level 16*

-Level 5 has emerged out of the core wing jump-forms on all 3 wings = Level 7 of the core wings have been cast; rebar preparation for casting the Level 8 core wings.

-Preparations for the casting of the Basement 1 floor slab are still underway.

Yet again, thanks for the photograph updates everybody!

*I have recalibrated this section of my update, bearing in mind that they are casting the slightly taller plant/mechanical floors at levels 13 and 14 within the central core jump-form.

First noticeable change i have seen since the live view went up. Also the yellow stuff, which i believe is a form of scaffolding how it it lifted as it moved up very quickly based on the pictures
