Saudi Aramco

Saudi Aramco is a fully-integrated, global energy and chemicals enterprise and a world leader in exploration and production, refining and distribution, and the world’s top exporter of crude oil and natural gas liquids. The company manages reserves of 332.9 billion barrels of oil equivalent. In 2017, Saudi Aramco produced over 3.7 billion barrels of crude oil, and about 12.4 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas. And to move these valuable resources, Saudi Aramco has over 20,000 km (>12,000 mile) pipeline network. This is about the distance of a roundtrip flight from London to Tokyo.

And in 2017, the company exported around 2.5 billion barrels of oil. Of that, 68.5% went to Asia, 14.1% went to the United States, while 11.1% went to Europe and countries in the Mediterranean region. In addition, some of the company’s crude oil production is sent to domestic refineries to produce a variety of products for local consumption.

Saudi Aramco also owns and operates three refineries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to supply gasoline, diesel and other products to local customers and consumers, with a refining capacity of 0.9 million barrels per day. In addition, Saudi Aramco has a 50% stake in two joint venture refineries (SAMREF and SASREF), a 62.5% stake in SATORP and YASREF, and 37.5% equity ownership in Petro Rabigh. Together they provide Saudi Aramco with a refining capacity of over 1.9 million barrels per day.

Additionally, Saudi Aramco affiliates hold stakes in a number of refining and marketing enterprises around the globe, including the Motiva Company in the United States, S-Oil Corporation in Korea, Showa Shell Sekiyu in Japan, and the Fujian Refining And Petrochemical Company in China, a partnership with Sinopec and ExxonMobil. The capacity of these refineries is over 2 million barrels per day. This brings total worldwide refining capacity to almost 4.9 million barrels per day. Saudi Aramco’s equity share is over 3.1 million barrels per day.

Headquartered in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Aramco’s operations in the Kingdom include refining, petrochemicals and distributing oil products to meet domestic daily energy demands. The company employs over 70,000. Through its affiliates, Saudi Aramco also has joint ventures and subsidiary offices in China, Egypt, Japan, India, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

By 2020, Saudi Aramco’s goal is to be the world’s leading energy and chemicals company, focused on maximising its income, facilitating the sustainable and diversified expansion of the Kingdom’s economy, and enabling a globally competitive and vibrant Saudi energy sector.
