The Inspiration for Patent Application No. 203

Drilling challenge? Solved.

To prevent the loss of expensive drilling mud, we examined local date seeds to determine whether this material could be effective in sealing rock formations. Performance evaluation tests proved a success, and we filed our 203rd U.S. patent application in 2015 for this ingenious, environmentally friendly solution that will enable new local business and job creation. Because, at Saudi Aramco, we believe that with determination and focus, opportunity can be found just about everywhere.
