Gas production in Bahrain rose to 415.143 million standard cubic feet (mscf) by the end H1 2019, compared to 369.418 mscf for the same period in 2018, according to NOGA.

Natural gas production accounts for 69% of Bahrain’s total gas production, while associated petroleum gas (APG) represents 31% of production.

The Bahrain field is the country’s main source of gas, and NOGA says it is currently seeking to increase gas resources in the Kingdom.

The Kingdom of Bahrain consumes its entire gas production by supplying power generation plants and the industrial sector.
