About Us

Saudi Aramco’s In-Kingdom Total Value Add (iktva) program is designed to drive supply-chain efficiency and value across our operations, and to encourage the development of a diverse, sustainable, and globally competitive energy sector in the Kingdom.

At Dhahran Expo Center, over four days from January 30 to February 2, Saudi Aramco will host its annual iktva 2023 Forum & Exhibition. A full program of workshops and seminars will provide opportunities for engagement with businesses committed to boosting local content within the Saudi energy economy.
Since the launch of our program in 2015, iktva has created best-in-class infrastructure, streamlined business processes, and pioneered industry initiatives that ensure sustainability and enabled new opportunities.
In 2023, we seek to build on our progress and our theme of “Accelerating Future Success,” which will strengthen our readiness and resilience, forged by our collective localization efforts in different focus areas, such as sustainability, digital, industrial, manufacturing, and others. As a major contributor to the commercial and industrial sectors of the Kingdom, the local supplier ecosystem remains a top priority in Saudi Aramco’s long-term planning. iktva continues to accelerate economic growth, enhancing the value of our supply chain. Through collaboration, all of us can continue to play an important role in providing the vital energy the world needs. The journey continues. This annual gathering helps us to further innovate, collaborate, network, and look forward to even greater achievements.
