Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: December 2016

  • The Kingdom of Bahrain is the smallest oil producer among the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations.
  • Bahrain and Oman are the only two countries bordering the Persian Gulf which are not members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
  • Bahrain’s oil and natural gas resources are governed by the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA). NOGA controls multiple subsidiary companies, including the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO), the Bahrain National Gas Company (BANAGAS), and the Tatweer Petroleum Company.
  • The Kingdom of Bahrain receives revenues from two oil fields: the onshore Bahrain (Awali) field, and the offshore Abu Safah field, which is jointly shared with Saudi Arabia. The Bahrain field, managed by the Tatweer Petroleum Company, produced around 50,500 b/d of crude oil in 2015, up from 48,800 b/d in 2014.
  • Bahrain and Saudi Arabia split annual revenues from the 300,000 b/d Abu Safah offshore field in Saudi Arabia as a result of a 1958 political agreement. Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia’s state oil company, oversees production at the field. Bahrain refines and markets half of the output from Abu Safah, which is connected to Bahrain’s Sitra refinery via pipeline. In 2015, Bahrain received 151,000 b/d of Abu Safah crude oil from Saudi Arabia.
