    沙特阿美首席执行官阿敏•纳瑟尔:科技突破助力于满足全球对能源日益增长的需求。

    纳瑟尔:我们与中国签订一系列化工及燃料零售业的合资协议,彰显了公司对中国市场的重要承诺,积极贯彻阿美拓展下游业务的战略。

    沙特阿美旗下曼尼法(Manifa)油田在国际石油技术大会上荣获“项目一体化卓越大奖”。

    沙特阿美将于2020年在沙特阿拉伯承办国际石油技术大会。   

    沙特阿美总裁兼首席执行官阿敏•纳瑟尔(AminNasser)出席3月26-28日在北京召开的国际石油技术大会(IPTC)并发表讲话。纳瑟尔表示,尽管能源行业正面临一场“认知危机”,但行业也在经历重大转型,科技方面的突破正助力能源公司更为高效地满足日益增长的能源需求。    

    纳瑟尔认为,关于电动车的影响和碳排放存在一些错误认知,对我们是否能顺利向安全稳定、可持续的能源未来转型提出了挑战。他表示:“我们要让人们认识到石油和天然气在未来几十年仍将在世界能源中占据举足轻重的地位。我们要自己开展长期投资打消人们的疑虑,告诉他们一直以来我们提供的安全保障是他们可以继续依靠的。”    

    纳瑟尔指出,沙特阿美下定决心利用科技手段降低环境影响。他表示阿美正在大力投入,打造国际化的天然气业务,开展零放空燃烧行动降低甲烷气体排放,开发高效的发动机和燃料技术,开展碳捕捉、利用封存方面的开拓性工作,将更多的原油直接制成化工品以缩短常规的价值链。近期的一份国际研究显示,技术手段已经助力阿美成为行业内油气生产上游碳足迹最低的公司之一。    

    沙特阿美也正在利用“第四次工业革命”(工业4.0)的技术力量。通过大数据、预测分析、人工智能、自动化和3D可视化等技术,我们在勘探、生产和管理公司资产方面达到了前所未有的安全性、准确性和成本效益的高水平。事实上,世界经济论坛近期表彰了位于沙特东部省的奥斯曼尼亚(Uthmaniyah)天然气厂,授予其工业4.0“灯塔项目”荣誉称号。该厂是先进分析和人工智能技术应用的先行者,有效地缩减了巡检时间,优化了成本,提高了安全性。    

    在谈到国际能源形势时,纳瑟尔指出油气贸易流向的增长重心正从中国沿着“一带一路”向西进发。他说:“我们正在沙特和中国之间架设一座能源桥梁,不仅满足中国对能源日益增长的需求,也满足大部分工业工艺对石化产品的需求。”他补充道:“这座能源桥梁真正的优势在于快速流动的资本,富有活力的能源合作,以及基于相互信任和共同愿景形成的战略关系。”    

    说到明年的IPTC大会时,纳瑟尔表示,“沙特阿美非常自豪能在不到一年后作为东道主承办IPTC2020年大会,我们热忱欢迎全球能源业界同仁来到沙特。作为全球能源业的中心,地处通向中东北非地区的要地,沙特阿拉伯是首屈一指的地区核心,拥有大量盈利前景绝佳的投资机会。”    

    首席执行官阿敏•纳瑟尔出席中国发展高层论坛    

    首席执行官阿敏•纳瑟尔还出席了在北京举行的中国发展高层论坛并发表讲话。中国发展高层论坛是中国政府高层领导、全球商界领袖、国际组织和中外学者之间重要的对话平台。   

    纳瑟尔表示,从中国发展高层论坛二十年前首次召开至今,中国在全球经济中扮演着日益重要的角色,事实证明这也为全世界带来了巨大的收益。如今中国提出“一带一路”倡议,又走到了一个新的具有历史意义的时刻。显然,充足、可靠、负担得起的能源供应对中国乃至全世界经济的持续发展都是至关重要的。我认为由更清洁的石油、天然气与新型的和正不断发展的能量来源组成的一种实用的能源结构有利于中国兼顾各方,同时实现清洁能源和经济发展的目标。沙特阿美已经准备好在这一战略举措中发挥主导作用,开展更多投资,包括与能源相关的基础设施建设,以保证中国和一带一路沿线的合作国家能享有稳定可靠的长期能源供应。    

    纳瑟尔在中国发展高层论坛上会见了国务院总理和副总理,他们表示,欢迎沙特阿美投资辽宁盘锦的下游一体化合资企业。国务院总理李克强称赞了沙特阿美履行沙特王储今年二月访华签署的协议并积极推进项目实施所作出的努力。   

    在沙特王储穆罕默德·本·萨勒曼今年二月访华期间,沙特阿美与中国能源企业签署了一系列协议,其中包括:   

    与北方工业集团和盘锦鑫诚签署合作协议,在辽宁省盘锦市开发一座炼化综合体。

    签署的两份谅解备忘录拟将收购位于舟山市日原油加工能力80万桶的浙江石油化工有限公司(浙江石化)9%的股权。   

President and CEO Amin Nasser stressed the importance of the role oil and gas will play in global energy transition for the decades to come, and the need to seize the opportunity of innovation and technology in lightening the carbon footprint of fuel products at the opening of the 11th International Petroleum Technology Conference in Beijing on March 26.


  • CEO Amin Nasser: Technological breakthroughs are helping the world satisfy its growing demand for energy.

  • Nasser: Through a series of JV agreements in China’s chemicals and retail fuel sector, we are demonstrating our commitment to the China market and our strategy to expand our downstream business.

  • Saudi Aramco’s Manifa oil field receives recognition at International Petroleum Technology Conference for “Excellence in Project Integration Award”.

  • Saudi Aramco to host International Petroleum Technology Conference 2020 in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. 

 

Addressing the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) in Beijing on March 26-28, Saudi Aramco President and CEO Amin H. Nasser said that despite the energy industry facing a “crisis of perception”, it is undergoing major transformation thanks to technological breakthroughs which help energy companies meet growing energy demand more efficiently.


Nasser said these misperceptions - which relate mainly to the impact of electric vehicles and carbon emissions - challenge our ability to transition to a secure and sustainable energy future. He said: “We need to help [people] realize that oil and gas will remain vital to world energy for decades to come. We need to reassure them with our own long-term investments that the safety belt we have always provided is one they can continue to rely on.”


Nasser said Saudi Aramco is, nonetheless, determined to use technology to reduce environmental impact. He noted that Saudi Aramco is investing in its international gas business, reducing methane emissions via a zero-flaring program, developing efficient engines and fuels, pushing the boundaries of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS), and shortening the conventional value chain by turning more crude oil directly into chemicals. As shown in a recent international study, technology has already helped Saudi Aramco to produce oil and gas with one of the lowest upstream carbon footprints in the industry.


Saudi Aramco is also harnessing the power of “Fourth Industrial Revolution” (IR 4.0) technologies. Through the power of big data, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, automation, and 3D visualization, the company is able to explore, produce, and manage its assets more safely, accurately, and cheaply than ever before. Indeed, the World Economic Forum recently recognized Uthmaniyah Gas Plant in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province as one of its IR 4.0 “lighthouses”. The plant is a leader in the use of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence to slash inspection time, optimize costs, and increase safety.


Reflecting on the international energy landscape, Nasser pointed out that oil and gas trade flows are growing along the “Belt and Road” route spreading westwards from China. He explained: “We are building an energy bridge between Saudi Arabia and China that not only meets China’s growing needs for energy, but also the petrochemical products required for most industrial processes.” He added: “The true strength of the bridge is fast moving capital flows, dynamic energy partnerships, and strategic relationships built on mutual trust and shared vision”.

Referring to next year’s edition of IPTC, Nasser said “Saudi Aramco is proud to be the host of IPTC 2020 in less than a year, and we look forward to welcoming the global energy community to Saudi Arabia. As the heart of the global energy sector and a gateway to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, Saudi Arabia is a prime regional center with ample and lucrative investment opportunities.”


CEO Amin Nasser attends the China Development Forum (CDF)


While in Beijing, CEO Amin Nasser attended the China Development Forum (CDF), an annual business gathering for China’s senior leadership and representatives from global leading businesses, international organizations, and scholars from China and around the world.


In remarks he delivered at the CDF, Nasser said that since the Forum first met 20 years ago, China’s expanded role in the global economy has been of “great benefit” to the world. He said: “China is at another milestone moment with the Belt and Road Initiative. Clearly, having adequate, reliable, affordable and clean energy will be critical to the continued development of China and the broader global economy. I believe that a pragmatic mix of cleaner oil and gas and the new and evolving energy sources will help achieve both of China’s cleaner energy and economic goals.” He added: “Saudi Aramco is ready to play a leading role as part of this strategic effort and make more investments, including in energy-related infrastructure, to ensure China – as well as all the Belt and Road partner countries – have access to reliable long-term energy supplies.”


During the CDF, Nasser met with China’s Premier and Vice Premier who welcomed Saudi Aramco’s investments in an integrated downstream JV in Panjin City in Liaoning province. At the same time, China’s Premier, Li Keqiang, commended Saudi Aramco’s commitment to follow up on the project after the signing of the agreement in February during the visit of the Saudi Crown Prince to China.


During HRH Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s visit to China last February, Saudi Aramco signed several business agreements with Chinese energy entities, including:


  • An agreement to form a joint venture with NORINCO Group and Panjin Sincen to develop a fully integrated refining and petrochemical complex, located in the city of Panjin in the Liaoning province of China.

  • Two agreements to acquire a 9% stake in Zhejiang Petrochemical’s 800,000 barrels per day integrated refinery and petrochemical complex, located in the city of Zhoushan.
