Al Sa’adi said, “Saudi Aramco aims to promote business investment opportunities through technology across the kingdom’s energy services sector ecosystem. The agreements signed today support the kingdom’s plans to develop industrial zones, create jobs and attract foreign direct investment, as well as drive economic diversification.”

The MoUs represent new collaborations with companies from six countries. These include France, Norway, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain and the US.

The MoUs are intended to support Saudi Aramco’s operations and Saudi Arabia’s economic diversification strategy by increasing the efficiency of the technology used in upstream, downstream and engineering services.

In the long term, these agreements aim to help improve sustainability and technological efficiency throughout the value chain.
