King Salman bin Abdul Aziz has ordered to name one of Aramco’s streets under Engineer Ali bin Ibrahim al-Naimi’s name and honor him in recognition of his efforts.

The Royal Decree explained that the street naming and honoring the engineer Naimi comes in recognition to the efforts and contributions of the engineer in his home country.

Ali al-Naimi, has launched few days ago his book: “from the desert to the oil world”, during a ceremony that was held on Friday at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London.

The grand, old, wise man of the industry Ali Al-Naimi has finally spoken. Through his 317-page memoirs, “Out of the Desert: My Journey from Nomadic Bedouin to the Heart of Global Oil,” to be published next month by Portfolio Penguin, the old man is opening up his heart – to the extent possible – to an eagerly awaiting global audience.

Ali Naimi has been an industry insider – and – for decades. His beginnings were humble. He joined Saudi Aramco at the age of 12, as an office boy. And decades later, he became the CEO of Aramco – the world”s largest and most integrated oil company. Hardly a few in the world could boast of such a meteoric rise. And he didn”t stop there. King Fahd selected him to be the Saudi oil minister. In this capacity, he was often dubbed as the wheeler and shaker of the global energy world. (MORE).
