Aramco Gulf Operations Company, the fully owned subsidiary of Saudi Aramco, which partners with Kuwait Gulf Oil Company, meets local and global energy demands with the production of its hydrocarbon reserves. AGOC is also working with the Khafji Joint Operations organisation in which it owns a 50% share alongside its partner. The two share the Al Khafji, Lulu, Hout and Dorra fields, which are located in the Neutral Zone between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Kuwait continues to meet the demand for liquefied natural gas while Saudi Arabia has increased gas exploration after it completed a massive crude expansion programme in 2009.
