Saudi Aramco produces and exports more crude oil than any other company. Recent production has averaged some 8 million barrels per day (bpd). That is more than twice the output of the next highest producer and nearly five times greater than the largest U.S. oil company. Saudi Aramco maintains a maximum sustained crude production capacity of 10 million bpd, underscoring its determination to meet customers' requirements.|
Saudi Aramco ranks among the top 10 companies in gas production worldwide. The company is also a leader in both the production and export of natural gas liquids (NGL), and a major producer of refined products. The company produces natural gas in association with crude oil and nonassociated gas from deep, independent gas fields. This gas is used as fuel and feedstock for the Kingdom's backbone industries and utilities, and for export and domestic consumption as NGL. A vigorous program is currently under way to expand gas production and processing capabilities to meet increasing demand for gas at home to power the Kingdom's robust domestic economic growth.
