Manama: Bapco has announced that the refinery has hit a new record by achieving an average crude run for the whole of last year of 265,600 barrels per day (bpd).
"This is the highest crude run in the last decade since 2005," said Bapco deputy chief executive and chairman of the environment, health and safety committee Ebrahim Talib.
"The 2015 record crude run is the highest run post the Low-Sulphur Diesel-Production (LSDP) Project, and is reflective of high on-stream factor and mechanical availability, and an excellent reliability performance," he added.
"We have had a very good year from personal and process safety point of view, which has ensured that maximum revenues have been generated for Bahrain."
Mr Talib said the achievement was "a culmination of the diligent performance in operation and high availability of process units, resulting from regular reliability checks and on-going maintenance programmes, hence, leading to highest possible plant availabilities".
"This new record is a tremendous tribute to the dedication of our entire workforce. Through a focus on safety, the environment, clear communication, visible leadership, we continue to deliver superior results.
"Our focus on the strategic plan has enabled us to achieve high satisfaction in executing the work, and allows us to demonstrate that we are a true pacesetter in the oil industry in line with our leadership's ambitions."
