Aramco chose to issue Islamic bonds over conventional ones due to high demand for the instrument as a result of few dollar sukuk sales from the Gulf this year, a source told Reuters on Monday.
The final terms and size of the transaction are expected to be set on Wednesday.
Aramco has been widely expected to become a regular bond issuer after its debut $12 billion bond deal in 2019 was followed by an $8 billion, five-part transaction in November last year, also used to fund its dividend.
There are 29 active and passive bookrunners on the deal, the term sheet showed.
