Saudi Arabian shrimp producer National Prawn Co. (NPC) on Wednesday announced that it is meeting with Saudi Aramco to talk to the oil giant about working together in the field of environmental management.

NPC buys Aramco’s oil and diesel, which it uses in the electricity general station and in its land and marine equipment.

Executives from the two companies have already met once to explore possible areas of cooperation in environmental management.

At the meeting, NPC presented its views on the development of the prawn industry and its strategic plans for the future. The two companies discussed NPC’s facilities and the quantities of energy bought and consumed currently by the shrimp producer from Aramco-owned distribution stations. Aramco executives also took a tour of NPC’s operations.

Currently in the midst of an expansion project, NPC announced at the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels in April that it was nearing its next step into finfish aquaculture and that it was ready to stock its new fish hatchery with amberjack.
