History

Back in 1990, we had to dream big when we opened our first, very humble, representative office in Japan. Now we’re the largest oil exporter to the region.

Now, 25 years later, we’re Aramco’s main hub for the provision of services and materials in the whole of Asia.

Small beginnings

Our expertise comes from the 80-year heritage of parent company, Saudi Aramco – when in 1935, the very first Aramco test well was drilled in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

From developing one of the greatest energy reserves the world has ever known, over the years the business has evolved from an oil company into a fully integrated global energy enterprise.

But that doesn’t mean our work is done. It’s an exciting time for the energy sector, and just the start of our journey to help invent the future.
