The refinery upgrade programme at Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) is moving ahead, with the award of an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to Sweden’s Sandvik for a new sulphur handling unit. The estimated $21 million plant will have capacity of 500 tonnes a day and will be located on the east side of the existing refinery at Sitra. Completion is due in the first quarter of 2007 to coincide with commissioning of the low-sulphur diesel production (LSDP) and refinery gas desulphurisation (RGD) units.
