Our response to COVID-19

People are our priority. We are securing the health and safety of our workforce and communities and ensuring the continuity of an energy supply upon which the world relies.

As the world faces an unprecedented health crisis, we stand with our people. This means our employees, who work tirelessly to bring energy to the world. It means our communities, the neighbors and the families who support us. And it means the global community - for whom energy is an essential and integral part of their lives.

To our people all around the world, we are ready, and we are responsive. We are in this together.

As we continue to deal with the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, I would like to highlight the incredible efforts of our colleagues around the world to ensure that we get through these testing times, together... This is a pivotal moment in our history. Like many of you, I am confident we will get through this. When we do, we will look back with pride on how we did so, together.

About our response

The world depends on us, and we are committed to delivering - for our people, our communities and our global customers.

Our People

We are part of Saudi Aramco’s 70,000 men and women who work tirelessly to bring energy to the world. Our people are our most valuable resource, and we are committed to protecting their safety.

We are instituting measures to minimize the spread of the virus, limiting exposure to potential at-risk individuals, cancelling events, and taking meetings and training programs online. Our dedicated teams are disinfecting public and office spaces, setting up additional hand sanitizer stations, and putting up educational posters throughout our facilities. We have also facilitated working from home wherever possible, including employees considered to be at higher risk from infection, to reduce the in-office population, all in line with social distancing instructions issued by authorities in each of our locations. We're also educating our employees on the risks and precautionary measures they can take to protect themselves, offering regular advice, guidance and a dedicated advice hotline.

Our Communities

We are more than just a company; we are a community. A community that includes families, neighbors and friends.

Working with the communities in each of our geographies, and in line with relevant government measures, we are providing support that includes much-needed medical equipment such as ventilators, high-efficiency air purifiers and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Those same systems are in place now, so that we can continue to deliver to the world. We have increased preventative measures across our facilities to ensure they are protected from contamination, and are continually sterilizing workspaces and instituting health checks across our teams. Our dedicated employees are keeping the energy supply flowing; to the markets, the manufacturers, and the municipalities. The continuity of daily life has never been more important.
