I’m confident that today’s agreement paves the way for even greater accomplishments in the coming years."
John Krenicki, vice chairman of GE and president and CEO, GE Energy, said, "This agreement reflects GE's commitment to long- term investment in Saudi Arabia and elevates our strong relationship with Saudi Aramco to an exciting new level.
