Bapco to champion energy sector at Gulf Industry Fair

MANAMA, January 17, 2016

Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), the kingdom's national oil and gas company, has renewed its strategic sponsorship of Gulf Industry Fair 2016, to be held next month in Bahrain.

Bapco will champion the energy and environmental protection sector at the region’s premier industry fair taking place at Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre from February 9-11 under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain.

“The Gulf Industry Fair plays a key role in encouraging and promoting the increasingly diverse face of industrial development in the GCC,"  said Dr Pete Bartlett, Bapco’s chief executive.

“Bapco is a key player in Bahrain’s 2030 vision. We are not just a major provider of energy to the Kingdom of Bahrain, but also an essential catalyst for the growth of industry," Dr Bartlett said.

Bapco’s commitment to Gulf Industry Fair will not only include its presence during the exhibition to conduct present and future meetings with customers, but also to support a programme of public engagement taking place around the exhibition.

Bapco will lead a workshop on procurement and marketing, surrounding the new projects and pipelines by Bapco and the National Oil and Gas Authority of Bahrain (Noga).

In addition, Bapco will provide a keynote speaker for the Innovations for Industry Forum taking place on February 10.

“We are excited for the opportunities that Gulf Industry Fair provides in promoting the developments of Bapco that are in line with Noga’s strategy for the energy sector in Bahrain," added Dr Bartlett.

“Bapco’s support for the Gulf Industry Fair, along with Noga, is significant with both pillars playing a major role in the national economy," said Jubran Abdulrahman, managing director of HCE, organisers of Gulf Industry Fair.
 “Gulf Industry Fair remains a unique one-stop event promoting the suppliers and developers of industrialisation of the economies across the GCC,” Abdulrahman said.

Bapco will be supporting the Industrial Careers Day on February 11, along with Noga and Alba, to encourage and inform future generations looking for career paths in industrial companies.
