Al-Faleh said Saudi oil will be used in a refinery built by a Saudi-run Saudi-owned company, after a meeting with Jeff Radibi, South African energy minister in Pretoria.
"Talks are held with the Aramco teams, the Saudi National Oil Company, and they are sponsored by the South African Department of Energy," al-Faleh said.
The exact location of the refinery and the petrochemical plant will be determined in the coming weeks.
Saudi Arabia was still keen on using South African oil reserves. Al-Faleh added that the ACEA Power Company, Saudi Arabia, is looking to invest in the launch of South African renewable energy programs.
He also emphasized the talks on Saudi investment in the South African Dollar Arms Company.
