Saudi Aramco signed the unconventional gas stimulation services contract with Halliburton to further improve the economics of Saudi Aramco’s unconventional resources programme.

The contract signing ceremony, which was attended by Amin H Nasser, president and CEO of Saudi Aramco and Jeffrey A Miller, president and CEO of Halliburton, reflects Saudi Aramco’s pursuit of unconventional gas to serve domestic needs, offset local crude burning, provide feedstock for chemical industry development, and spur regional economic development in line with Vision 2030, the kingdom’s national transformation programme.

The new agreement will provide lump sum turnkey stimulation services, which include major hydraulic fracturing and well intervention operations.

Amin H Nasser said: “Over the past three years, Saudi Aramco has made great strides in developing our unconventional resources programme, with emphasis on unconventional gas as an important clean energy source for the kingdom’s future. Now, with this contract formalised today with Halliburton, we enter the important next phase of achieving our gas expansion objectives. Halliburton has been a reliable provider of products, services and technologies to our company for many decades. We welcome their expertise in unconventional resources, and we have great confidence in our joint ability to achieve operational and cost efficiencies for this important growth area.”

Saudi Aramco’s unconventional resources programme spans three areas of Saudi Arabia: North Arabia, South Ghawar and Jafurah/Rub’ Al-Khali.
