Saudi Aramco and BAPCO announce new pipeline to meet Bahrain energy demand

Saudi Aramco and the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) announced on Tuesday the successful commissioning of the AB-4 pipeline, a new phase in the strategic Aramco-Bahrain crude oil pipeline.

The new pipeline aims to meet Bahrian’s growing energy demand, Aramco said in a statement.

It will be capable of transporting up to 350 thousand barrels of crude oil per day.

The AB-4 pipeline, which is thirty inches in diameter and 112 kilometers long, originates at Saudi Aramco’s Abqaiq Plants Facility and terminates at the BAPCO Refinery in Bahrain.

It consists of three segments: a 42-km onshore Saudi segment, a 28-km Bahrain onshore segment, and a 42-km offshore segment.

The new pipeline is equipped with the latest technologies to ensure safety, environmental protection and hydrocarbon supply reliability in the coming decades.

“The commissioning of AB-4 pipeline is another chapter in the special relationship between Saudi Aramco and BAPCO in several aspects including the energy sector that has flourished for more than 73 years and beyond,” said Abdullah M. Mansour, Acting Executive Head of Pipelines Distribution & Terminals at Saudi Aramco.

The existing 73-year-old pipeline system which has been supplying BAPCO with crude oil since 1945 will retire safely, the statement said.
