Noga: Bapco refinery ops unaffected by Saudi Aramco drone strikes
National Oil and Gas Authority says Bapco's business continuity plan was activated on 14 September 2019
Bahrain's National Oil and Gas Authority (Noga) announced that Bahrain Petroleum Company’s (Bapco) refinery operations were uninterrupted and there was no impact on its supply of products to the local market following drone attacks on Saudi Aramco's facilities that had cut production capacity by half at the world's largest oil company earlier this week.
“All our facilities continue safely and without incident,” a Noga spokesperson told Bahrain’s state news agency BNA.
They added: “We keep our key stakeholders advised of what we will do in response to such incidents and update our plans as new and relevant information becomes available. We develop and practice these plans in response to these kinds of incidents.
“We have close contact with our Aramco colleagues at the effected facilities and continue to assess the potential implications to our operations in Bahrain, and the crude supply to Bapco’s refinery is uninterrupted to meet the operational requirements of the refinery in compliance with the measures adopted in the Business Continuity Plan.”
Noga added that Bapco’s continuity plan was activated in response to the incidents reported from Saudi Aramco.
