will see 7% growth this year and the SWF Public Investment Fund is driving a raft of US$ billion giga-projects in the kingdom.

On the energy front, Saudi Aramco will announce another huge profits haul on 1 November, coinciding with ADIPEC2022. Aramco is on track to make US$40 billion of investments during 2022 and is keen to introduce advanced energy technologies into its mix to support its digitalisation, de-carbonisation and energy transition programmes.

Massive offshore fabrication yards in partnership with NPCC and McDermott have been announced with a key focus to support the IKTVA initiative.

Lead times on vendor registrations, IKTVA, taxation and legal compliance are the key challenges being faced to navigate the opportunities.
