Bahrain energy sector developments lauded
Manama, October 19, 2011
The strides made by Bahrain's oil and gas industry were highlighted by Energy Minister Dr Abdulhussain Mirza at a bilateral US-Arab Chamber of Commerce meeting.
Dr Mirza, who is also the chairman of National Oil and Gas Authority (Noga) and Bapco, gave a presentation on the latest developments in the oil and gas industry as well as recent projects carried out by Noga and Bapco.
The meeting, part of the chamber's annual tour to the region, was hosted at Bapco Club in Awali on Tuesday.
Bapco was represented by members of its senior management, who reviewed a number of issues with other participants representing different business organisations in the region.
The meeting also discussed business development plans and ways of promoting business between US and the Arab region.
It was enriched by discussions in which different delegations from energy-related US companies expressed interest in meeting Bapco officials.
The visiting delegation thanked Dr Mirza, Noga and Bapco for hosting the meeting.
"Bapco enjoys strong and distinguished relations with the American energy companies since its establishment in the early 20th century," Bapco chief executive Faisal Al Mahroos said.
"Many of Bapco's management received their advanced training with leading American energy companies as part of a bilateral co-operation agreement," remarked Mahroos.
"We sincerely thank them for the valuable meeting we have had with them and look forward to more fruitful relations with them in future," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
