Six Aramco departments were announced as winners of the King Abdulaziz Quality Award during its fifth session on Monday. The award is organized under the patronage of The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and it honors public and private sector establishments for their institutional excellence in a way that enhances competitiveness in these sectors and the quality of their services.
The winning departments in Aramco were the East-West Pipeline Department, the Hawiyah Gas Plant Department, Khurais Producing Department, the Yanbu’ Refinery Department, the Mechanical Service Workshops Department, and the Computer Operations Department. The award was also won by the Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemicals Company (SATORP), a joint venture between Aramco and the Saudi Total Refinery Company, and the Yanbu’ Aramco Sinopec Refining Company Ltd. (YASREF), a joint venture between Aramco and Sinopec.
“The company’s winning of this award, which bears the name of its founder, King Abdulaziz, is a high achievement that we are proud of, and it confirms that we are following the same approach of focusing on excellence in our performance in all company sectors,” said Saudi Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser.
“And the generous patronage of it by The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud indicates the great importance of the award, and its pioneering role in supporting and encouraging national institutions to excel and raise the levels of quality in their work,” said Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser.
Nasser continued that due to COVID-19 the year was a difficult one for business. But the awards are a testament to the company’s ability to face challenges with flexibility.
The awards are an example of excellence in action across all Aramco departments. Winning these awards also represents another step in Aramco’s journey toward achieving its vision of becoming the leading integrated global energy and chemicals company, which will reflect in the operating performance of all its facilities.
