Gas Production


We’ve been capturing and using gas as a way to generate additional value streams beyond crude oil since the mid-1970s. Today, we are the sole supplier of natural gas to Saudi Arabia, the seventh largest natural gas market in the world.

Our natural gas is a fundamental product used to meet growing domestic energy demand to power industries such as steel, aluminum, and water desalination. It provides an efficient, cleaner burning energy alternative for these activities which helps lower emissions. Since our natural gas production yields large quantities of ethane, natural gas liquids (NGL) and condensate, we supply these as feedstocks for major petrochemical and building materials industries.

Providing domestic customers with gas as a source of energy and as a feedstock has other advantages; it allows us to free up more crude oil for export and other high value applications.

Over the years, we have built a comprehensive gas infrastructure in the Kingdom that ensures timely and efficient delivery to our customers. Aramco's MGS, an extensive network of pipelines that connects its key gas production and processing sites throughout the Kingdom, is currently undergoing an expansion.

Aramco plans to expand its gas business to meet the large and growing domestic demand for low-cost cleaner energy by increasing production and investing in additional infrastructure. This demand is driven by power generation, water desalination, petrochemical production, and other industrial consumption in the Kingdom. Aramco's gas production also yields NGL (including ethane) and condensate, which supplement crude oil production and provide feedstock to the refining and petrochemical industries.

Furthermore, Aramco seeks over time to develop an integrated global gas portfolio and continues to evaluate investment and joint venture opportunities outside the Kingdom in natural gas and LNG projects.
