With our significant investment in technology and infrastructure, we strive to maximize the value of the energy we produce for the world along with a commitment to enhance Aramco’s value to society.

Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations’ spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom’s vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.

We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.

ERD prepares the Annual Report and Interim Reports (i.e. quarterly and half-yearly) to fulfill these reporting obligations, along with other ad hoc reports for external stakeholders. Topics covered in the Annual and Interim Reports include, but are not limited to, the company’s history, market and business overview, business strategy, financial and operational performance, management discussion and analysis and corporate governance reporting.
