Research Domains

The aim of the Technology Quest 2012 is to meet the major research challenges — in implementing Saudi Aramco’s strategy — to expand the Company’s fuel technology and petrochemical know-how and 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.

The R&DC has identified eight key challenges to address during this Technology Quest: five in fuel technology and three in chemicals.

At Technology Quest 2012, the primary objectives include:

  • Establish new research partnerships and strengthen existing ones
  • Encourage and solicit interest in joint R&D projects
  • Increase awareness of external programs in refining and chemicals
