Saudi Aramco is the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a fully integrated, global petroleum and chemicals enterprise.
Over the past 80 years we have become a world leader in hydrocarbons exploration, production, refining, distribution and marketing.
Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas production infrastructure leads the industry in scale of production, operational reliability, and technical advances. Our plants and the people who run them make us the world’s largest crude oil exporter, producing roughly one in every eight barrels of the world’s oil supply.
We are currently undergoing a major transformation program to realize our vision to become the world’s leading integrated energy and chemicals company by 2020. We’re wholly focused on maximizing income, facilitating the sustainable and diversified expansion of the Kingdom’s economy, and enabling a globally competitive and vibrant energy sector. Key to achieving our aims is a 56,000-strong workforce comprising homegrown talent and more than 80 nationalities.
Saudi Aramco is already one of the largest oil and gas companies in the world. To put that into perspective, we supply 25% of the world’s daily oil supplies. We manage proven crude oil reserves of 260 billion barrels and the world’s fourth largest gas reserves, with 253 trillion cubic feet.
Saudi Aramco is the world’s largest exporter of petroleum, with a daily output that stands at nearly twice our nearest competitor. We lead the way in terms of natural gas liquids exports; we’re among the leading producers of natural gas; and we are actively exploring the potential in renewable energy deployment.
Yet nothing stands still in the energy industry. This is why we have completed a series of multibillion dollar projects to boost our petroleum output and meet increasing global energy demand, while ensuring our own leadership position for years to come.
As well as playing a huge role in the global energy industry, we are a chief driver of national economic growth in Saudi Arabia, which has allowed us to assume a level of societal responsibility well beyond the scope of most companies.
