Saudi Aramco aims to achieve net zero emissions from its operations by 2050 while also building hydrocarbon capacity and expanding its maximum sustained production capacity to 13 million barrels per day, Chief Executive Amin Nasser said on Saturday.


"Saudi Aramco will achieve the ambition of being net zero from our operations by 2050," Nasser told the Saudi Green Initiative summit, where Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman earlier announced the Kingdom would achieve net zero by 2060.


Nasser said investment in gas would allow Aramco to eliminate a lot of the liquid burning in the Kingdom.
