Dear fellow Ex-Aramcons:

 As you are aware, S.Aramco Ex-employees Association was formed on September 26, 1996 with a sole intention of getting together occasionally and sustain the contact for fostering the fraternity and fellowship among us. Every member is considering this organization as his own. Some of our founder-members who put considerable efforts to form and keep the Association lively are no longer with us and on this juncture, lest us pray Almighty for perpetual peace for their souls.

 One of our dreams has been fulfilled through the publishing of this detailed Directory. My hearty congratulations to Mr.M.K. Obaidulla especially, our Executive committee members and office bearers. At present we have less than two hundred members included in this Directory, but I am sure that if every member takes a little effort, this directory can be included with four hundred members at least.

Finally let me extend my sincere thanks and appreciation and best wishes to all our members and sponsors.

 

 

 

 Thanking You,

A.M.Peter, President

At the very outset I have to pay tribute to the late M.J.Chacko for doing the initial work which made the organization of this association possible. He continued to be a source of inspiration and motivation among the members.

 The ex.employees,of Aramco has to realise and acknowledge the opportunity they had at Aramco was a special blessing for which we all had to be grateful to God and this would carry an obligation to share the benefits to the less privileged members of the community. The logistics of achieving this goal may be planned and implemented as per decisions to be taken at the general body meeting.

 All this will give you an opportunity to enjoy of giving as per opposed to the joy of receiving.

I wish you all the Best.

Dr.Peter John

 

Editor's Preface

President Message
M.K Obaidulla

With a great pleasure and deep sense of fulfilment let me present to you this Directory that was a long cherished dream of the Saudi Aramco Ex-employees Association. The notion of bringing out a Directory of former employees was felt because an elaborate database is a significant contraption to bridge the scattered fellowmen and foster and maintain the fellowship and friendship. At the outset let me thank the Executive Body for taking me into confidence in choosing me as Chairman of the Directory Board for which I may express my deepest appreciation and gratitude. In fact when this onerous task was taken we never comprehended its complexity and laborious involvedness in collecting and compiling the information of the persons spread all over Kerala and other adjacent states. Without extended period of constant contacts through telephones, e-mails and fielding enthusiastic and spirited acquaintances at various places for identifying and collecting the data of those especially who never registered with the Association, needless to stay , we could not have accomplished the task to this extent. So let me place on record my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Executive Committee members for extending their ardent support and inspirational enticement. I am also indebted to those who exhibited immense interest and exerted sincere efforts in collecting information from their associates so that we could incorporate former employees as many as possible. But we regretfully admit that there are many left out for want of their whereabouts.

An attempt has been made to contain certain vital information about the growth of Saudi Aramco  portraying antediluvian and latest photographs (courtesy to Google & certain publication of Saudi Aramco)to indicate the striking revolutionary changes being taken place in this greatest corporate oil industry from its inception. Also useful tips on airports, tourist attractions etc.are incorporated for immediate references. To bring out the Directory more exquisite, elegant and attractive ,picture square pattern by imprinting the magnificent photographs of the nature and unique pictures of Kerala and Saudi Aramco as watermark is applied for each page. You may notice that for some individuals the information provided is incomplete as well as no photographs due to our inability for collecting those although tireless attempts have been persistently pursued. Sincere efforts with utmost diligence have been put in this herculean process, but  inadvertent human errors that might have crept in cannot be ruled out altogether ,if so I may kindly be excused.

I may emphasize the fact that the support and assistance rendered by my wife ,Baby boosted my confidence and enthusiasm in accomplishing the strenuous task. Before concluding, we express our deepest gratitude and thanks to all our benefactors who magnanimously financed towards the cost of the Directory through donation and advertisements. Also we are thankful to Nirmala Offset Press,Chalakudy in particular Mr. Nixon Jose V.for their utmost cooperation in designing and printing the Directory so gorgeously.

To conclude , we are fortunate enough to be part of this greatest flamboyant company in the world,unparalleled in the oil industry and this directory may unite us again to cherish those wonderful reminiscences of the bygone days in Saudi Aramco. Consider this is a befitting opportunity to extend our thanks and gratitude to Saudi Aramco ,the  Management and Saudi Arabia and wishes for company’s  continued growth to new heights

Congratulations
