Bahrain Petroleum Company board of directors reviewed Bapco’s performance for the first half of 2021 during a meeting chaired by the Chairman and Chief Executive of Bapco, Dr Dawood Nassif.

The meeting yesterday also reviewed Bapco’s progress on key Performance Indicators. During the session, board members noted the significant progress made in various areas of operations despite the continuing global challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic slowdown.

They commended management on completing a 50-day FCCU complex turnaround and inspection programme, which was accomplished within budget, earlier than scheduled, and achieved without a single safety incident.

In addition, the meeting received updates on the transformational initiatives underway throughout the company, which are crucial on the path to the Bapco of the Future.

Other issues addressed included the effective management on limiting the spread of Covid-19 infections within the workforce, the outstanding safety record over the last quarter, and the complete dedication and commitment of all employees to maintain safe and efficient operations during these challenging times.

The board reviewed the status of the Bapco Modernisation Programme (BMP). They also visited the wharf, where work is ongoing to handle the increased refinery capacity due to the BMP. Board members applauded the progress and efforts undertaken by Bapco to expedite the completion of this investment programme, despite the challenges of Covid-19 over the last one-and-a-half years
