Riyadh:  Saudi oil giant Aramco today reported it made $121 billion in profit last year (2023), down from its 2022 record due to lower energy prices.

The results still marked the company’s second highest ever result, Aramco said, as members of the OPEC+ alliance continue to cut their production to try to boost global energy prices. Aramco had reported a $161 billion profit in 2022, likely the largest ever reported by a publicly traded company.

“The decrease mainly reflects the impact of lower crude oil prices and lower volumes sold, and weakening refining and chemicals margins,” the company said in its filing to the Tadawul stock market.

Despite being lower this year (2024), Aramco boosted the dividends due to its stock holders to over $31 billion in the fourth quarter, according to filings. Aramco reported overall revenue of $440 billion last year (2023), down from $535 billion in 2022.
