DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Saudi Arabia-based Saudi Aramco hired a company to develop energy modeling in the country.

Saudi Aramco announced International Resources Group, one of the world's largest integrated international oil companies, will provide insight into the evolution of that country's energy system to meet the growing demand for energy within the country.

"The Saudi Aramco contract is representative of an important component of IRG's commercial sector practice. The demand for these energy systems analysis services is growing significantly," said IRG Corporate Vice President Matthew S. Mendis. "And we anticipate that increasing global concerns for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate change challenges will spur that demand."

IRG provides professional services in general management and institutional strengthening services to public and private sector clients in the United States and around the world; and international development services to the U.S. Agency for International Development, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank and other donor agencies, governments and organizations.
