Bapco sets up new capacity record
Manama, December 8, 2011
The Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) has set a new record for monthly average capacity of 271,300 barrels per day (bpd).
The new record, set last month, is a major accomplishment compared to the refinery's average capacity of 262,000 bpd.
The last record of 270,300 barrels per day was in May, 2008.
This new achievement is the result of Bapco's high performance in operations, regular controls and check-ups, and ongoing maintenance.
This is in addition to the concerted efforts and professionalism of its workers and technicians in the units and the support teams, including utilities, storage and shipment, said Bapco deputy chief executive Gordon Smith.
Smith expressed his satisfaction with this latest accomplishment, hailing Bapco's commitment towards achieving excellence in all its operations and bolstering its status among leading oil refineries worldwide. – TradeArabia News Service
