Saudi energy giant Aramco has signed 31 agreements and memoranda of understandings worth $27.5 billion with local and suppliers, CEO Amin Nasser said Monday.

"We signed $27.5 billion (24 billion euros) in a total of 31 commercial collaborations," Nasser said in a statement at an investment forum held in the eastern Saudi city of Dhahran.

Insider-turned-critic Khashoggi was killed and reportedly dismembered in Saudi Arabia's Istanbul consulate on October 2 in what the kingdom said was a "rogue" operation.

More than 1,000 local and energy service and equipment suppliers and manufacturers attended Monday's forum.
