Empowered to learn
With an eye on empowering and engaging young employees, Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC Advanced Research Center (ARC) has launched several development programs over recent years targeting niche groups with the goal of expanding their skill sets.
Mapping the Red Sea
Saudi Aramco undertakes an unprecedented geological task on the Kingdom’s West Coast as we look to first understand, and then uncover, the treasures buried beneath the waters of the Red Sea.
An environmental success in Manifa
Senior management from Saudi Aramco’s Manifa Producing and the Environmental Protection departments met with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals for an update on the environmental achievements and long-term conservation projects at the company’s flagship program for environmental stewardship.
UAVs take flight for explorationists
The search for oil and gas requires geologists and explorationists to conduct studies on outcrops of rock layers that hold hydrocarbon. Understanding the characteristics of such layers is essential in assessing their potential to hold and produce oil and gas.
Hasbah – new challenges, new solutions
In the deep water of the gorgeous Arabian Gulf lie the Hasbah and Arabiyah fields. Discovered in 2008, these natural gas fields are key to our vision for energy in the Kingdom. By tapping into this rich resource, we hope to nearly double our gas supplies over the next 10 years to reach more than 20 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscfd). This will increase the share of gas — the least environmental polluting fuel — in the utility fuel mix to more than 70% and help to satisfy domestic power demand, thus freeing up more high value liquids for industry and export.
Saudi Aramco’s Unconventional Gas Program
Since signalling a long-term commitment to unconventional resources a few years ago, Aramco’s unconventional gas program has shown the potential to complement future in-Kingdom gas supply. This is significant as unconventional gas is key to meeting the Kingdom’s growing energy needs with cleaner burning natural gas for domestic power generation.
Unconventional Gas: A growing resource
Over the last few years there has been a surge of interest for unconventional gas around the world. With newly discovered unconventional gas resources being distributed globally and adding substantially to already known reserves of natural gas, many countries have hope that they may be able to secure new domestic gas supplies.
The Manifa field development
Development of the Manifa field, the world’s fifth largest oil field, will soon reach its full potential. Find out what we’ve done and how we’ve broken world records.
The Karan Program
The Karan offshore gas field development was completed ahead of schedule and under budget – and that’s not the only achievement.
The Wasit Gas Plant
The Wasit Gas Plant is one of the largest gas plants Saudi Aramco has ever built.
