Saudi Aramco has emerged from the September 14 attacks on its oil facilities "stronger than ever", chief executive officer Amin Nasser told employees in a message.
"The fires that were intended to destroy Saudi Aramco had an unintended consequence: they galvanised 70,000 of us around a mission to rebound quickly and confidently, and Saudi Aramco has come out of this incident stronger than ever," said the message, released on the occasion of the Saudi national day, to be celebrated on September 23.
Nasser added that the attacks "cemented to the world the great importance of Saudi Arabia and its oil industry."
Nasser also commended Saudi Arabia's civil defence forces, and heroic employees  who helped in containing the damage of the attacks.
"We have another reason for national pride and that is the great accomplishment the heroic employees, in support of civil defense teams, achieved in containing the damage from the sabotage attacks," he said.
