    Around $4.6 billion was invested in Aramco Gas Pipeline Co. by the BRI-focused state Silk Road Fund and state China Merchants, as part of Aramco’s $15.5 billion gas pipeline leasing deal with a consortium led by BlackRock that completed in early 2022. Silk Road Fund was also part of a consortium led by US EIG Global Energy Partners that agreed a similar $12.4 billion infrastructure leasing deal in 2021 for Saudi oil pipelines.

    Chinese firms already involved in NEOM include Huawei for communications tech, Envision Energy for wind turbines, Powerchina on construction; China Railway Construction Corp.; and clean power firm Sungrow for energy storage. China National Nuclear Corp is also interested in Riyadh's first nuclear power plant.

He also serves as the chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs and chairman of the Council of Political and Security Affairs. He is considered the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, being deemed as such even before his appointment as prime minister in 2022. He served as minister of defense from 2015 to 2022. He is the seventh son of King Salman.

    At the inaugural Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh in October 2017, Mohammed announced plans for the creation of NEOM, a $500 billion economic zone to cover an area of 26,000 square kilometres on Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast, extending into Jordan and Egypt. NEOM aims to attract investment in sectors including renewable energy, biotechnology (especially genetically modified agriculture), robotics and advanced manufacturing.

    ENOWA will lead the development of NEOM's world-class, sustainable energy and water systems. Work to develop these utilities has begun to provide the critical infrastructure for NEOM's key projects: THE LINE, its revolutionary urban development; OXAGON, its reimagined industrial city; and TROJENA, its sustainable mountain tourism destination. OXAGON is actively seeking tenants for its manufacturing hub, and supply of energy and water is essential.

    NEOM’s water and wastewater system is designed to be completely sustainable, delivering low-cost water to all residents and businesses in NEOM.  Powered by 100 percent renewable energy, the advanced desalination plants will not put anything back into the sea and will deliver drinkable, mineralized water to all in NEOM, directly to the tap or out of a bottling plant.

    A significant element of the desalination process is planned to be the production of valuable materials from seawater.

    The output of desalination, brine, is usually waste, but ENOWA plans to produce significant quantities of valuable, industrial materials such as industrial-grade salt, magnesium, and potassium, which can be sold commercially and effectively.
