2012 Saudi Aramco TechQuest

In Paris, France we will be hosting our second TechQuest in Europe on November 19th – 20th, 2012.

The aim of this Technology Quest is to meet the major research challenges in implementing Saudi Aramco’s strategy to expand its fuel technology and petrochemical capabilities. New research partnerships to jointly develop technology solutions are sought to address these challenges. A primary objective of this Technology Quest is to obtain proposals for technology solutions.

Saudi Aramco, being one of the largest oil and gas companies in the world, is looking to partner with companies who can offer viable and innovative solutions to challenges it faces in the downstream domain. Potential partners that may find themselves able to respond to these technological challenges may fall, but are not limited to, entities in the following categories: petrochemical companies, car engine & fuel designers, universities, research institutes, SMEs, etc.
