The Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) is engaged in the exploration, production, transportation and sale of crude oil and natural gas (upstream) and the manufacture, transportation and sale of petroleum products (downstream).

Saudi Aramco is headquartered in Dhahran, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which the company refers to as the “Kingdom” in its communications.

Saudi Aramco was formed on 31 November 1988 by Royal Decree No. M/8, which approved Saudi Aramco's original articles. However, the company's history dates back to 29 May 1933 when the Kingdom granted a concession to the company’s predecessor the right to, among other things, explore the Kingdom for hydrocarbons.

For the financial year end 31 December 2019, Saudi Aramco generated revenue (and other income) of SAR 1,236.8 billion, equivalent to USD 329.8 billion. In the same year, the company made a profit after tax of SAR 330.7 billion, equivalent to USD 88.2 billion.

On 11 December 2019, Saudi Aramco completed its Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul). As part of the IPO, the Saudi Government sold an aggregate of 3.45 billion ordinary shares, or 1.73% of Saudi Aramco’s share capital.

Saudi Aramco is listed on the Saudi Stock Exchange (TADAWUL) under the code 2222.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
