The World Economic Forum (WEF) has recognised Saudi Aramco’s Khurais oil facility as a leader in the adoption and integration of cutting-edge technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Khurais is the company’s second facility, after the Uthmaniyah Gas Plant, to be included in WEF’s prestigious Global Lighthouse Network.

"We are delighted to be recognised once again by WEF for our deployment of cutting-edge technologies. Aramco continues to push the envelope of technological innovation in the energy sector and, through the adoption of 4IR solutions, we have achieved significant gains at our facilities in terms of efficiency, safety and environmental performance. Khurais is the largest intelligent oil field in the world, harnessing advances in Big Data analytics, machine learning, smart sensors and robotics. This recognition of Khurais exactly one year to the day since it was targeted in a 2019 attack is a clear indication of our team’s ability to record the highest level of achievement, despite the most difficult challenges,” said Amin Nasser, President and CEO.

Khurais was one of 10 facilities added to the network this year, taking the total number to 54 worldwide. The Uthmaniyah Gas Plant was included in 2019, meaning Aramco is one of only nine companies represented in the WEF network by more than one facility - and the only major energy company in the Lighthouse network.
