Saudi Aramco and stc Group announced today the launch of a new supercomputer named “Dammam 7”, which is among the ten most powerful computers in the world. The new computer provides new opportunities in the field of exploration and development, and enhances decision-making capabilities in the field of exploration and investment. The launch of the computer is also an advanced step within Saudi Aramco’s digital transformation strategy, which includes a set of advanced technologies that contribute to reshaping key operations, enhancing efficiency, and enabling the company’s leadership in the field of earth sciences.

The computer was developed in Dhahran Technology Valley in partnership with the Solutions Company, a subsidiary of stc Group, and Cray Company, a subsidiary of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. And provided “Dammam 7” with a high-performance computing capacity of 55.4 Petaflops, allowing it to process and photograph the largest geophysical data set in the world.

The computer named “Dammam 7”, named after the first oil well discovered in the Kingdom, will contribute to overcoming traditional methods of exploration and production, through the use of the latest technologies, simulation algorithms and advanced deep learning; Where the supercomputer can handle more detailed 3D floor models; This improves the company’s ability to discover and extract oil and gas, while at the same time reducing the risks associated with exploration and development; In addition to enhancing the decision-making process in the field of exploration and development of hydrocarbon resources, and directing future investments in production and resource allocation.

On this occasion, Saudi Aramco President and Chief Executive Officer, Engineer Amin Hassan Al-Nasser, said: “This moment is a pride for us. This high-speed computer that derives its name from the first oil well discovered in the Kingdom in 1938 is considered the most powerful in the Middle East and among The most prominent in the world, and has been designed to meet the unique requirements of Saudi Aramco, as it links the ancient history of the company and the Kingdom in exploration, with our prosperous present in the energy sector, which relies on investment in the field of technology mainly to reach and pioneer in the future. The field of discovery and extraction in the exploration and production sector. The tremendous data that we have gathered over more than 80 years, the new computer will enable us to reduce its processing time from several days to hours only. This technology will contribute to achieving new discoveries and enhancing extraction efficiency, while at the same time reducing costs It will also have a positive future impact on energy efficiency and emission reduction. “

For his part, the CEO of stc Group, Nasser bin Sulaiman Al-Nasser, said: “The launch of the supercomputer data center in Saudi Aramco will open new prospects in the field of exploration and will have a significant impact on data digitization and quality. This is in line with the nationwide digital transformation plans in Future, and we are proud to work with local talent to establish the “Dammam 7” center.
