Saudi Arabian oil giant records a net profit of $161.1 billion for the year 2022


Saudi Arabian oil giant Aramco announced on Wednesday that it had recorded a net profit of $161.1 billion for the year 2022, a significant increase from the previous year’s $49 billion.

The company’s revenues also saw a substantial increase, with a 72% rise from $229.5 billion in 2021 to $394.7 billion in 2022. Aramco attributed the impressive results to the recovery of oil prices and the ramp-up of production after the pandemic-related disruptions.

Aramco’s CEO, Amin Nasser, hailed the company’s performance in a statement, saying, “Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we were able to maintain our strong operational performance and financial resilience, thanks to our agility, adaptability, and the dedication of our people.”

He added that the company’s strategic investments in downstream and petrochemicals, as well as its expansion into new markets, had contributed to the positive results.

The company, which went public in late 2019, is the world’s largest oil producer and has been at the forefront of the Saudi Arabian government’s efforts to diversify its economy away from oil. Aramco has also made significant investments in renewable energy and has set a target of becoming a net-zero emitter by 2050.

The news of Aramco’s strong financial performance comes as oil prices have risen to their highest levels in years, buoyed by a combination of supply constraints and a rebound in global demand. However, concerns about the impact of rising oil prices on inflation and the global economy continue to loom large.

Despite the challenges, Aramco remains bullish about its future prospects. “We are well-positioned to capture opportunities in a rapidly evolving energy landscape, and we remain committed to delivering sustainable value to our stakeholders,” Nasser said.
