The U.S.-Saudi Business Council hosted an Aramco Supplier Forum alongside OTC for U.S. companies interested in doing business with Aramco. The event drew approximately 140 attendees, both in person and online.
Our company’s growth and transformation offer substantial opportunities for suppliers, manufacturers and investors in a number of key energy sectors, with a special focus on sustainability and decarbonization products; technology for 3-D printing and robotics; industrial applications of steel plate manufacturing, modular construction, and energy storage; and materials such as nonmetallics and carbon fiber.
Representatives of King Salman Energy Park (SPARK) also participated in the forum and had an opportunity to discuss their key expansion projects and localization efforts.
Nabeel I. AlAfaleg, president and CEO of Aramco Americas, provided opening remarks along with Delano Roosevelt, president and CEO of the U.S.-Saudi Business Council. AlAfaleg talked about the importance of Aramco’s partnerships with U.S. businesses and addressed win-win opportunities.
Dan Brouillette, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy and current president of Sempra Infrastructure, was the keynote speaker during the luncheon. He emphasized the need for those working in energy to remain at the forefront to ensure global sustainability — to lean in to investments and technology innovation, especially in such sectors as LNG and carbon capture.
