BAPCO Refinery Expansion Reaches Halfway

The Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco)’s refinery expansion project has reached halfway to completion and is on track to be finished by Q3 2022, according to Akhbar Al-Khalij.  

The Minister of Oil for Bahrain, Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa bin Ahmed, said at a virtual council in Bahrain that the modernization of the Bacpco refinery is one of the largest ambitious projects in the country; with a cost of more than $6 billion, it will increase the refinery’s capacity to about 400,000 barrels per day (bbl/d). He added that Bahrain would see a $2 billion increase in cash flow after its completion in 2022.

At present, the production capacity of Bapco is 267,000 bbl/d, and it also operates storage facilities with a capacity of 14 million barrels of oil (mmbbl/d). Bapco exports about 90% of the refined products through the dock in Sidra.
