Saudi Aramco’s Unconventional Gas Ambitions Gain Momentum

Saudi Aramco is working on boosting its gas production to meet soaring local consumption by tapping conventional and unconventional reserves.

The company is the sole supplier of natural gas in Saudi Arabia, which has the seventh largest natural gas market in the world, according to the company’s 2017 annual review released in August.

Saudi Aramco processed 12.4 billion standard cubic feet a day (Bscf/d) of raw gas and supplied 8.7 Bscf/d of natural gas with an energy content of 1,080 Btu per scf/d last year, according to the review.
