ASC’s Upstream group provides support for Saudi Aramco’s upstream operations and research. The group collaborates closely with Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC Advanced Research Center, and is a key participant in scientific and engineering organizations relevant to the upstream oil and gas industry.
ASC Upstream’s geologists, geophysicists and petroleum engineers also oversee large benchmarking studies that often involve multiple organizations and focus on safety and environmental best practices.
Referral of ASC-endorsed upstream technologies
to Saudi Aramco is a core responsibility. To further that aim, the group hosts the Saudi Aramco Technology Quest in the United States to engage industry partners and access innovative technology. These events draw top scientists and research ideas from around the world.
