Our response to COVID-19

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 effort 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

As 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 and setting up additional hand sanitizer stations. We have also facilitated working from home to most employees wherever possible, including those considered to be at higher risk from infection, to reduce the in-office population. This is in line with the social distancing measures issued by the Singapore government authorities.

We're also continuously communicating with our employees on the risks and precautionary measures they can take to protect themselves, offering regular advice and guidance.

"The health and safety of our employees and our community remain our top priority. In Singapore, we have put in place policy and practices to ensure that our employees can continue to work safely and productively. For the local community, we are actively looking for ways to help the vulnerable groups affected by the COVID-19 outbreak."

Our communities

We are more than just a company; we are a community. A community that includes families, neighbors and friends. Together, Saudi Aramco’s global offices have committed to contributing more than US$3.5 million to support healthcare and disaster relief organizations.

As part of Saudi Aramco’s worldwide response in uplifting the lives of those affected by the pandemic, Aramco Singapore partnered the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) to contribute to one of their initiatives to provide pack and deliver customized care packages for the vulnerable elderlies living alone. Over three days from 11 – 13 August, 28 Aramco Singapore volunteers packed 390 customized packages comprising a mixture of food, medical, hygiene and household items to meet the needs of the elderly. On 15 August the care packages were delivered to the elderly and Aramco Singapore volunteers also took time to conduct a visual assessment of the elderly well-being.

Our operations

Despite the present global challenge of COVID-19, we remain committed to the reliable production and supply of energy-the cornerstone of our company and our promise to our customers.

We already have inbuilt systems for managing global crises, and have never missed a shipment for operational reasons. 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 flowing; to the markets, the manufacturers, and the municipalities.

The continuity of daily life have never been more important.
