A new exercise facility at Al-Midra looks to be a game-changer as far as recreation facilities for employees.
From National Day to a new exercise facility, there was a wide range of news for readers this week. Here’s a brief look at some of the bigger stories of the past seven days.
Readers were asked to submit their photos of the long weekend celebration for Saudi National Day, and they responded with a remarkable array of images from the shores of the Red Sea to the Eastern Province.

The ‘Uthmaniyah Gas Plant, one of the world’s largest gas processing plants, was recognized by the GPA Midstream Association with its prestigious Environmental Excellence Award during its annual convention in San Antonio, Texas.
Aramco has been an active member in support of midstream industry standards and sharing of technical knowledge and developments. This award recognizes the company’s increased footprint in the midstream sector, its commitment to operational excellence, and its role as an integrated energy in all three stages of industry operations.
‘We are proud to have been selected for this prestigious Environmental Excellence Award from such a reputable organization. This award reinforces Aramco’s commitment to managing its environmental footprint associated with its operations,” said Fahad S. Dossary, manager of the ‘Uthmaniyah Gas Plant Department.
Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser highlighted the need for a much more credible energy transition plan, as he delivered a keynote speech at the Schlumberger Digital Forum today.
During the event, he stressed the importance of achieving a new global consensus on the way forward, and outlined three strategic pillars that should be central to the response. The pillars are:
• A recognition by policy makers and other stakeholders that supplies of ample and affordable conventional energy are still required over the long term
• Further reductions in the carbon footprint of conventional energy, and greater efficiency of energy use, with technology enabling both
• New, lower carbon energy, that steadily complements proven conventional sources.
