Aramco energizes the world economy.
Aramco occupies a unique position in the global energy industry. We are the world's largest producer of hydrocarbons (oil and gas), with the lowest upstream carbon intensity of any major producer.
With our significant investment in technology and infrastructure, we strive to maximize the value of the energy we produce for the world along with a commitment to enhance Aramco's value to society.
Headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and with offices around the world, we combine market discipline with a generations' spanning view of the future, born of our nine decades experience as responsible stewards of the Kingdom's vast hydrocarbon resources. This responsibility has driven us to deliver significant societal and economic benefits to not just the Kingdom, but also to a vast number of communities, economies, and countries that rely on the vital and reliable energy that we supply.
We are one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as amongst the top five global companies by market capitalization.
Ghawar Gas Producing Department (SGGPD). SGGPD is a non-associated gas producing department. Its objective is to be the best-in-class gas producer that is driven by competent and motivated workforce to sustain the company's energy demands in a safe, reliable, efficient, environment friendly and cost-effective manner. The department also strives to achieve excellence, maintain the highest HSSE standards and adopt the cutting-edge technologies including Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0). The organization handles all corrosion aspects associated with gas producing facilities including Gas Compression Plants.
Corrosion engineering plays a major role for SGGPD to ensure safe and reliable operation for the gas production and compression facilities and sustain the production targets. The engineer will provide the required support and contribute, along with the other engineering disciplines, in all the activities to ensure efficient, enhanced and optimized gas production process including providing the required support on the department's main process functions including produces design, process safety, energy, efficiency, availability, reliability and environment related aspects as well as the technical design reviews for the current and future projects.
