HE Khalid A. Al-Falih is named 2016 Energy Intelligence Petroleum Executive of the Year

In recognition of navigating the company through times of unprecedented growth and significant challenges in the global petroleum industry, HE Khalid A. Al-Falih, Chairman of the Saudi Aramco Board of Directors, has been named the 2016 Energy Intelligence Petroleum Executive of the Year.

Al-Falih, who is the 20th winner of the highly regarded peer-selected honor, was chosen by a committee comprising top global oil industry executives. The award will be presented to Al-Falih on Oct. 18 during the 37th Annual Oil & Money Conference in London.

“The selection of HE Khalid A. Al-Falih by his peers is a reflection of his strong leadership of Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, during a period of dynamic growth and unprecedented challenges to the international petroleum industry,” said Thomas Wallin, editor-in-chief of Energy Intelligence.

Al-Falih was appointed Chairman of the Saudi Aramco Board of Directors in April 2015. He joined the company in 1979, quickly rising in the company and taking on increasing roles of responsibility, which included being named president and CEO in January 2009 — a role he held until being named Minister of Health and Chairman of the Board.

Making a difference on all fronts

In recognizing Al-Falih, his peers noted that he oversaw the expansion of Saudi Aramco’s oil production capacity through a number of upstream projects and also significantly increased its refining and petrochemical capabilities through a series of new world-class facilities.

In addition, the company has continued to reliably supply international petroleum markets as the world’s largest exporter of crude oil, with direct sales to all main world markets, as well as supplying its own international refining and marketing partnerships.

Under his leadership, the company became a major natural gas producer as part of a strategy to reduce the domestic use of liquid fuel for power generation and to drive economic growth and diversification.
