Referring to a question about the refinery modernization plan he said that the project was being under continuous consideration especially the technical and engineering aspects.
Earlier, the company showcased the new range for the first time at a specially organised event at the Bahrain International Circuit on December 10, 2014.
Underlining its spirit of innovation and the commitment to fuel the nation’s progress Bapco has launched a range of advanced automotive lubricants in Bahrain.
