(MENAFN) The Saudi Aramco and Google parent Alphabet Inc are holding talks to jointly build a technology hub in the Kingdom, reported the Wall Street Journal.
It is not clear specifically whose data the centers would house or who would control them, the WSJ said.
A joint venture between Alphabet and Aramco could help Saudi Aramco expand into the United States, a goal for the oil company.
The size of the potential venture is uncertain, although it could be big enough to become listed on Saudi Arabia's stock exchange, according to the Journal report.
It was unclear where Aramco would list its shares ahead of an initial public offering that could turn it into the world's largest publicly traded company.
