A MEED report on Bahrain’s large project programme to 2022 and beyond was presented yesterday in Awali to Bahrain’s Minister of Finance Shaikh Ahmed Bin Mohamed al-Khalifa by MEED Events Chairman Edmund O’Sullivan.
Shaikh Ahmed is also responsible for Bahrain’s oil and gas industry and he was the keynote speaker at MEED’s highly-successful Bahrain Energy Forum in Bahrain on 22-23 April. The report was presented in the presence of Dr Ahmed al-Sharyan, general secretary of Bahrain’s National Oil & Gas Authority (NOGA). NOGA supported the forum.
“The report shows that Bahrain has plans for 38 major projects with an aggregate value of almost $70bn and most of these are due to be completed by the middle of the next decade,” O’Sullivan said. “Together, they will constitute the largest programme of capital investment in Bahrain’s history. More than $20bn of the investment will be for critical large-scale energy projects including the GPIC and Bapco refinery expansions, the proposed LNG import terminal and the new Arabia-Bahrain pipeline.”
The report on the Bahrain Energy Forum includes an 18-point action plan designed to promote the effective delivery of major projects in Bahrain.
