Saudi Aramco has grown to become the world’s largest integrated energy enterprise, employing more than 70,000 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, include exploration, the production and processing of crude oil and natural gas, refining, gas fractionation, the production of petrochemicals, and distributing petroleum products and gas to domestic customers.
We own and operate three domestic refineries, with a fourth under construction, to supply gasoline, diesel, and other products to local customers and consumers. In addition, we participate in five refineries with international partners in the Kingdom, four of which have integrated chemicals manufacturing capability.
Major export shipping terminals are located at ports on the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea, while domestic demand for automotive and aviation products is met through a Kingdom-wide network of strategically situated refineries.
In total, our domestic and international downstream operations have a gross refining capacity of 4.9 million barrels per day.
Our global operations and markets are served through subsidiaries, joint-venture and shareholding relationships with other international partners. We are represented in the three major global energy markets of Asia, North America, and Europe. Our Global Research Network, which includes satellite offices in these same strategic regions, is dedicated to addressing global energy challenges through technology solutions.
We hold stakes in refining and marketing businesses in China, the Republic of Korea, and Japan. In the United States, through the dissolution of Motiva Enterprises LLC, we retained the Motiva name and assumed sole ownership of North America’s largest single-site crude oil refinery.
Our chemical manufacturing capability is achieved with leading industry players through our joint ventures and listed subsidiaries in Saudi Arabia, China, Japan, South Korea, and the Netherlands. Through these ventures, we produce commodity chemicals as well as differentiated products.
We continue to pursue opportunities to further increase our chemicals and refining capacities in key strategic markets to enable sustainable growth and greater value creation.
