Attached to the board of director are executive commissions. These are formed on ad hoc basis, especially when the board needs additional studies concerning major projects or a big overseas acquisition. Such a committee is formed also to study major problems or disputes.

Saudi Aramco now is structured into four divisions, reduced from seven in 1993 and from five in late 1998. These are known as "business centres" (see details in 1999 survey of Saudi Arabia in Vol. 53).
