Home > Who We Are > Our Research Centers

We are opening three research centers (RCs) in the United States to support our innovation-oriented culture as well an energy research, technology development, and upstream and downstream operational reliability.
 
The centers are part of a global network of RCs to leverage scientific expertise and strengthen collaboration in providing solutions to Saudi Aramco research and technology challenges. The centers closely align their goals with those of Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC Advanced Research Center and its Research and Development Center.
 
U.S.-based centers are located in Houston, Boston and Detroit. 
 
The RCs will assist the company in engaging more closely with partners to bring solutions to the greater industry. The expanded approach is about collaboration and establishing strong, strategic relations with specialized centers of excellence to address far-reaching challenges. It will accelerate and expand the company’s capabilities by bringing together top global talent.


 
Houston
The Houston RC will span all upstream disciplines and is strategically located in a major hub for oil and gas research and development activities. It is also near chemical and oil field fluids manufacturers as well as service companies, R&D labs and top petroleum engineering universities.
 
Boston
The center is located adjacent to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to support computational reservoir modeling, nanotechnology and advanced gas membrane systems.
 
Detroit
This center will focus on carbon capture from mobile sources and fuel technology research. In collaboration with leading research organizations, it will also conduct joint research on fuel and engine development.
 
Other Research Centers
Other RCs are established in Aberdeen, Scotland; Delft, The Netherlands; Paris, France; Beijing, China; Dhahran, Saudi Arabia; and Thuwal, Saudi Arabia.
