Bahrain's Bapco reviews status of modernisation programme

Issues addressed during the meeting included the effective management on limiting the spread of COVID-19 infections within the workforce


MANAMA: The board of directors of Bapco reviewed the current status of the Bapco Modernisation Programme (BMP) and made a site visit to the wharf where considerable work is being done to expand the facilities to handle the increased refinery capacity that will come about as a result of the BMP.

The announcement follows a meeting of the board led by chairman and chief executive Dr Dawood Nassif, which saw directors also reviewing the refinery’s performance for the first half of 2021 together with progress on major key performance indicators (KPIs).

During the session, the board 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.

The board commended management on the successful completion of 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 board received updates on the transformational initiatives underway throughout the company, which are key components on the path to ‘Bapco of the Future’.

Other issues addressed during the meeting 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.
