Equipment manufacturing opportunities

As the national oil company of Saudi Arabia, with the world’s largest reserves of conventional crude oil, we are always looking for equipment that can help us work better.

That means we can offer many opportunities in equipment manufacturing and supplying.

Enhancing the private sector

New Business Development (NBD) boosts private sector participation in the Kingdom's economy by:

  • Increasing the range and quality of local goods by facilitating local and/or international investment in new and existing in-Kingdom manufacturers in the oil and gas industry.
  • Increasing the range and quality of oil field services by encouraging the development of reliable small and medium service enterprises leading to a transfer of technology and know-how to the Kingdom.

The Energy Sector Analysis & Development Department – a part of NBD – provides support to international investors interested in establishing local enterprises for equipment manufacturing and oil field services.
