Saudi Aramco signed agreements with several oil and gas service contractors for oil and gas megaprojects designed to enhance the company’s energy sustainability, diversify the economy, expand gas production, and localize domestic content. The agreements are valued at nearly $4.5 billion in total.

Eight agreements were signed, including three agreements with Madrid-based Técnicas Reunidas under the Gas Compression Program in the Southern Area. The project will improve and sustain gas production from Haradh and Hawiyah fields for the next 20 years by bringing an additional 1 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd).

The Hawiyah Gas Plant (HGP) Expansion Project will provide additional gas processing facilities to process raw sweet gas, to efficiently meet the Kingdom's energy demand. The contract will be awarded to the Italian firm SNAMPROGETTI (Saipem). Other agreements signed today cover theFree Flow Pipeline Contract for Haradh and Hawiyah (with China Petroleum Pipelines Company);engineering and project management services for the Zuluf Field Development Program (with Jacobs Engineering Inc.); the Pipeline and Trunk line Project of Safaniyah Field (with Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC); and the Slipover Platforms and Electrical Distribution Platform Project in Safaniyah Field (with McDermott Middle East).

Saudi Aramco President and CEO Amin H. Nasser said: “These agreements we signed are part of our natural gas expansion, as we add about 1 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd). This reflects our commitment to introducing new supplies of clean-burning natural gas. These new supplies will help reduce domestic reliance on liquid fuels for power generation, enable increased liquids exports, provide feedstock to petrochemical industries, and reduce carbon emissions.”

Nasser added: “Investments like these help secure Saudi Aramco’s preeminent position as a reliable supplier of energy domestically and to the world. They also reflect our concerted effort, as stated in Saudi Vision 2030, to diversify our economy, promote local manufacturing, support a sustainable environment, and strengthen our business and investment climate with the domestic private sector through fruitful international partnerships.”
