Aramcons recognized as industry leaders at ATCE


Saudi Aramco's own SPE chapter was named the recipient of the 2016 President's Award for Section Excellence.


Saudi Aramco and select individuals from the company were recognized for their achievements and support at the recent Society for Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Annual Technical Conference and Exhibit (ATCE), held at the Dubai World Trade Center in Dubai last month.

The company itself received a recognition certificate for its principal sponsorship of the ATCE in Dubai — the first time the ATCE had been held in the Middle East. In addition, president and CEO Amin Nasser and Upstream senior vice president Mohammed Y. Al Qahtani were given appreciation awards for their participation as keynote speakers on the opening day of the three-day event.

As the leading upstream producer in the oil industry, Saudi Aramco plays a major role in sponsoring the SPE and its chapters throughout the Kingdom. The SPE is the industry’s top professional organization for oil and gas professionals. With more than 7,000 international oil and gas industry leaders and professionals from around the globe attending the meeting, the event was an opportunity for learning and collaboration and to showcase the latest technologies being implemented by the company.  

President’s Award for Excellence

The company’s own SPE chapter, the SPE-Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Section (SPE-KSA), was named the recipient of the 2016 President’s Award for Section Excellence.

“This prestigious award recognizes SPE sections with remarkable programs. The SPE-KSA team’s endeavors to go beyond routine practices have clearly distinguished it among 207 sections across the globe,” said Fahad Al-Mutairi, SPE-KSA chairman. “This substantial achievement was only possible with the dedication, commitment, and hard work of the whole SPE-KSA team.”
