Our company is filled with pioneers, leaders and creative thinkers. Because of them, we’re continually discovering new and better ways of supplying energy to the world. We innovate in every area of our business.
Leading through innovation
No matter how successful we may be, we never stop exploring how to improve our performance. We believe this keeps us one step ahead in the energy business and ensures a brighter future for our company and those who rely on our products.
More inventive than ever before
In 2011, a total of 159 patents had been granted to Saudi Aramco. With 208 patent applications filed and 31 patents granted in 2011, our corporate patent portfolio grew by 24 percent. And this trend is set to continue. Our two pioneering research centers, the Research and Development Center (R&DC), and the Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center Advanced Research Center (EXPEC ARC), continue to push the boundaries of what we can achieve in energy research.
