We expand our global research network through our latest collaboration with the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).


The new research center located within KAUST combines the capabilities and talents of our people with those of the university to drive potential breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and create solutions for the energy sector.

Walaa Alhawaj, chemical engineer, ARC KAUST

The reason why I find ARC at KAUST to be unique is because of its proximity to one of the largest research hubs today.


I got the opportunity to innovate in more ways than I ever expected.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is controlled by artificial intelligence, machine learning, digitalization, sustainability, automated robotics, and these are mainly the topics and the core areas of collaboration between Aramco and KAUST.

Another contribution is the successful deployment of the first solar thermal energy system at Aramco to displace liquid fuels and reduce CO2 emissions. 

Ameerah Bokhari, petroleum scientist, ARC KAUST

The research program that I’m currently leading is focusing on developing a new generation of advanced materials that could benefit the industry in terms of cost reduction, CO2 mitigation, and the generation of oilfield chemicals that could support sustainability and the circular carbon economy in the industry.


ARC at KAUST builds on years of joint research in advanced technology and accelerates the deployment of scientific breakthroughs in our operations.
