Saudi Aramco said on Tuesday its gas program would attract $150 billion worth of investments over the next decade with production growing to 23 billion standard cubic feet a day from the current 14 billion.
“We also have world-class unconventional gas resources that are rapidly supplementing our large conventional resources … currently we have 16 drilling rigs concentrating on unconventional gas and more than 70 wells completed this year,” CEO Amin Nasser said at a conference in Dubai.
Nasser also said Aramco plans to invest $100 billion over the next 10 years in chemicals globally, in addition to potential acquisitions.
