Annual Review 2016

DHAHRAN, July 06, 2017

Since its earliest beginnings, Saudi Aramco has sought to be the world’s most reliable producer of petroleum energy.

Our long-term approach to managing the Kingdom’s hydrocarbon resources has consistently delivered superior performance and growth.

In 2016, we leveraged talent, fiscal discipline, and innovation to ensure resilience and realize landmark achievements, including record high rates of crude oil production, raw gas processing, and sales gas production, along with stronger integration along the entire petroleum value chain. We sustained our investments in research and development, seeking new ways of making petroleum more accessible, useful, sustainable, and competitive.

These achievements – and many others – are detailed in our 2016 Annual Review
