The company’s CEO Amin Nasser said that the organization would focus on opportunities for growth in order to maximize value for Aramco’s shareholders.
Gudaimi has been working as Senior Vice President of Downstream at Aramco, leading the company’s ambitious plans to expand its refining and petrochemical business at home and abroad.
Mohammed al-Qahtani, currently Senior Vice President Upstream, will take over the downstream portfolio, people familiar with the matter said, adding that Nasir Naimi, Vice President of petroleum engineering will be named as acting head of upstream.
Aramco’s profit plunged 73 percent in the second quarter of the year, it said this month, as a slump in energy demand and prices due to the coronavirus crisis hit sales.
