In the United States
The focus of our United States presence spans a variety of sectors; from unconventional reservoir engineering, to drilling, production, computational modeling, advanced materials, and transportation. Our center in Houston primarily focuses on upstream technologies for both conventional and unconventional resources, for the purpose of supporting discovery, recovery, and sustainability goals. Specializing in many research areas, including improving well-productivity, nano-based polymers, drilling operations and more, our Houston center is our largest R&D center outside Saudi Arabia.
Our second center in the U.S. is located in Boston, and houses research specializing in computational modeling, advanced materials, and nanotechnology. The innovative ecosystem surrounding the center provides it with collaborative research opportunities with top world universities, focusing on modeling, visualization, simulation, and applications of advanced materials.
The third center is strategically located in Detroit, near leading auto manufacturers and technology providers, to complement its development of state-of-the-art technologies for the transportation sector. It focuses on transportation technologies that reduce the overall environmental impact, and the running costs, of both current and future engines.
