Saudi Aramco has grown to become the world’s largest integrated energy enterprise, employing more than 65,000 people. Together with its subsidiaries and affiliates we are represented in the three major global energy markets of Asia, North America, and Europe.
We are headquartered in Dhahran in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, which borders the Arabian Gulf. Our operations span the Kingdom, with production and product distribution facilities linking all market areas. Major export shipping terminals are located at ports on the Arabian Gulf and Red Sea, while domestic demand for automotive and aviation products is met through a Kingdom-wide network of strategically situated refineries.
Our global operations and markets are served through subsidiaries, joint-venture and shareholding relationships with other international partners.
