Your Royal Highnesses, Your Excellencies, Distinguished Guests: good morning … and thank you for joining us.
We are deeply honored that His Royal Highness, the Amir of the Eastern Province, Prince Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, can be with us once again. We are also delighted that His Royal Highness, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, the Minister for Energy, has joined us today.
The support of our suppliers means a lot to Saudi Aramco.
As you know, we take great pride in our low-cost production and our reputation for reliability. A first-class supply chain is a critical factor that makes both possible.
Indeed, the importance of our supply chain was reinforced after the attacks on our facilities last September. The attackers tried to cripple us and hurt the global economy.
What they underestimated … and what the world came to appreciate … was the resilience of Aramco and the determination of our people.
As the smoke was still rising above Abqaiq and Khurais … we were bringing in materials, equipment and services to accelerate recovery.
Thanks to iktva … more of this than ever, was available locally.
