Bahrain 2019 Energy

By utilising technology to maximise value from existing reserves and investing in exploration, Bahrain’s energy sector is working to maintain and even increase levels of oil and gas production. Efforts in this direction have been helped significantly by the recent discovery of a large-scale, unconventional oil and gas reserve, which could substantially boost output over the coming decade. Officials are also moving to upgrade oil refinery and hydrocarbons import infrastructure, as well as expand the use of renewables and energy efficiency initiatives in the utilities sector, in part to free up locally produced gas for industry. This chapter contains interviews with Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Minister of Oil; Pete Bartlett, CEO, Bahrain Petroleum Company; and Sheikh Mohamed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, CEO, Banagas.
