In support of the corporate value of citizenship, and in line with the strategic direction and imperatives, Saudi Aramco is actively encouraging the Saudization of its contractors’ manpower.

Prior to 2005, each of our business lines pursued independent contractor Saudization initiatives. To integrate and further enhance our contractors’ Saudization process throughout the company, we established the Corporate Contractors Saudization function in January 2005.

The objective of Corporate Contractors Saudization is to establish a single entity within the company responsible for the coordination of all efforts to increase the Saudi component of our contractors’ work force.
