Saudi Aramco focuses on reducing carbon emissions from the oil and gas sector

During an interview broadcasted virtually as part of his participation in the International Petroleum Technologies Conference (IPTC) in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, the Senior Vice President for Exploration and Production at Aramco, Eng. Nasser Al-Nuaimi, stressed the importance of reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and that this matter constitutes the main element to achieve a real transformation in the energy sector.

He said: “The new energy system is an important axis, but it has a long time to go before it meets a large part of the increasing global demand for energy, and this means that the current and new energy will continue to walk side by side for a long time to come, and this makes it imperative for us to focus on reducing the volume of carbon emissions in the oil and gas sector, which is what Saudi Aramco and our business sector are working hard to do. “.

He added that to ensure energy security for the world in the future, the critical factors for success are: innovative technologies, innovation, and cooperation between oil and gas companies, new energy companies, power equipment manufacturers, service providers, technology developers and all stakeholders, including governments.

He explained that oil will continue to be an important element in the global energy mix, and that Aramco is currently focusing on increasing refining and marketing activities, increasing the production of chemicals, converting crude oil into petrochemical products, focusing on non-metallic materials, and developing the clean gas sector at the local and international levels, and on Hydrogen and blue ammonia from oil and gas, in addition to carbon capture, exploitation and storage.
