Bahrain's fuel tank construction work on track

MANAMA, November 21, 2017

Jet Fuel Company (BJFCo), a joint venture between nogaholding and Bahrain Airport Company (BAC), has started work on the construction of its fuel tanks which will be ready by March 2019, said a report.

BJFCo will be in charge of transporting jet fuel within the airport, as well as for the operation and maintenance of the new tanks, reported the BNA, citing senior officials at the regular weekly Cabinet session, which was chaired by HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa at Gudaibiya Palace yesterday (November 20).

BJFCo has in April signed aviation fuelling restructuring agreements for Bahrain International Airport (BIA) with several companies including Bafco, Chevron, BP, nogaholding and Bapco.

These deals will result in a more streamlined and efficient aviation fuel supply, operation and maintenance process at the airport, said the report.

The cabinet also took note of the completion of the necessary foundations for the fuel tanks and was informed that the entire fuel network will be ready for operation in July 2020, it added.
