Established in 1929, Bapco pioneered the discovery of oil in the Arabian peninsula being the first company to discover oil in the region in 1932. It played a leading role heralding in a new economic era for Bahrain, moving it from a pearling economy to an oil-based one. It soon became the largest employer in the country bringing rapid modernization to the Kingdom.

More than eight decades later, Bapco is now a regional oil and gas supplier and an important contributor to modern Bahrain’s economy, accounting for a significant portion of Bahrain’s energy-related activities.

The Company operates a 267,000 barrels per day (BPD) refinery, storage facilities for 14 million barrels, a marketing terminal and a marine terminal for its petroleum products. About 95% of Bapco’s refined products are exported. The Company also produces high-quality liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline, kerosene, and low sulfur diesel, which all form the core of its business.

The Company is moving ahead with its most ambitious plan to date, the Bapco Modernization Program (BMP), a US$4.2 billion flagship project designed to expand and upgrade the refinery from 267,000 to 380,000 barrels per day. This will improve the refinery’s overall energy efficiency and result in cleaner products that meet stricter environmental standards.

Once the BMP project is completed, Bapco and the Kingdom of Bahrain will usher in a new era of investment in new skills and technologies that will provide promise for generations to come.

After pioneering the discovery of oil in 1932 in the Arabian Peninsula, Bapco began exporting its products in 1934 before commencing refining activities in 1936. Not one to rest on its laurels, the Company played a leading role in shaping the modern Kingdom of Bahrain through its objective to generate wealth and foster the development of Bahrainis.

Wholly owned by the Government of Bahrain, Bapco is primarily engaged in refining, storage, production, marketing, training and development, and environmental initiatives in the Kingdom. The Company owns a 267,000 barrel-a-day refinery, with storage facilities for more than 14 million barrels, a marketing terminal and a marine terminal for its petroleum products. 95% of the Company’s refined products are exports with prime customers for crude oil and refined products based in the Middle East, India, the Far East, South East Asia and Africa.
