Saudi Aramco boasts the world’s fastest-growing technology portfolio, embracing industry-leading technologies across the board to produce oil and gas more efficiently, reliably, and sustainably.
Saudi Aramco is concentrating its efforts on upstream research and technology development, which will aid in the finding and recovery of hydrocarbon resources. Aramco has used advances — such as machine learning and predictive analytics — to grow their production by almost 2 million barrels of oil per day.
The Shallow Water Inspection and Monitoring Robot (SWIM-R) is a Saudi Aramco-developed underwater inspection robot. The SWIM-R robot can be remotely operated to perform underwater inspection tasks in shallow water environments, which prove difficult for traditional diving support vessels. The robot can be deployed from shore or by using a low-cost inflatable vessel, reducing inspection time and costs, and can complete inspection tasks four times faster than divers.
Saudi Aramco has diversified its portfolio to include sustainable and renewable energy, carbon capture, use, and storage, environmental sciences, energy storage, water conservation and reuse, and other technologies such as artificial intelligence and robots.
Their sensor technology has made it possible to collect well log data in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. Measuring generated fluids in a reservoir at various velocities and phases has become less complicated and more precise.
From cutting-edge materials for heavy-hydrocarbon separation to the deployment of reservoir nanoagents for improved monitoring and imaging, you name it and Saudi Aramco has it!
