Over its eighty-plus year legacy, Bapco has forged on from strength to strength following its inception in 1929. Pioneering the discovery of oil in 1932 in the Arabian Peninsula, the company began exporting its products in 1934, before commencing refining activities in 1936.

Bapco is wholly owned by the Government of Bahrain and accounts for a massive portion of energy-related activities; primarily refining, distribution of petroleum products and natural gas, sales and export of crude oil and refined products among others. It owns a 260,000 barrel-a-day refinery, storage facilities for above 14 million barrels, a marketing terminal and a marine terminal for petroleum products.

A major portion of Bapco’s customers are from the Middle East, India, Far East, South East Asia and Africa. Bapco is also involved in the supply of aviation fuel at the Bahrain International Airport, and supplies natural gas to power generating plants and other industries in the kingdom of Bahrain.

With an environment-centered approach and a steadfast workforce at its helm, Bapco continues to make great strides in the development of Bahrain’s economy in the times to come.
