Saudi Aramco, Bahrain Petroleum commission new pipeline, retire another

State-owned oil giant Saudi Arabian Oil Co., or Saudi Aramco, and The Bahrain Petroleum Company B.S.C., or BAPCO, announced Oct. 9 that they have commissioned a new pipeline to help meet Bahrain's growing energy demand.

The 112-kilometer AB-4 pipeline is capable of transporting 350,000 barrels of crude oil per day, beginning at Saudi Aramco's Abqaiq plants and ending at BAPCO's Refinery in Bahrain. The pipeline is divided into three parts, which include a 42-kilometer onshore Saudi segment, a 28-kilometer Bahrain onshore segment and a 42-kilometer offshore segment.

In addition, an existing pipeline system, which has been supplying crude oil to BAPCO since 1945, will be safely retired.
