The BAPCO Modernisation
Programme (BMP)

The Bapco Modernization Program (BMP) is Bapco’s long-term commitment to invest in the expansion and upgrade of its existing facilities. Once completed, it is expected that Bapco's capacity will increase from around 267,000 barrels per day to 380,000 barrels per day.

Phase 4 (Project Execution) of the BMP kicked off on Feb 26, 2018.

2018 was a design and planning year. 2019 will see a major shift towards construction with upwards of 5,000 workers mobilizing in Bahrain to progress construction. Project Progress was nearly at 10% of the total scope.
