RiyadhBahrain's Oil Minister Mohammed Al-Khalifa expected that the new pipeline project between his country and Saudi Aramco will be finished during 2018.

The new pipelines’ length is 118 kilometres, of which 42 kilometres are offshore, while the remaining 73 kilometres on shore, with 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) capacity, Saudi Al Eqtisadiah newspaper reported, citing Al-Khalifa as saying.

The Bahraini official further noted that collaboration between the two GCC countries in the oil sector is seeing a non-stop development.

In 2015, state-run Aramco signed an agreement with Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) to start establishing oil pipelines between the two nations.
