Saudi Aramco and the Bahrain Petroleum Company have commissioned the AB-4 crude oil pipeline.
The pipeline is part of plans to meet the Kingdom of Bahrain's growing energy demand and is capable of transporting up to 350,000 barrels per day of crude oil.
The 112-kilometer-long pipeline originates from Saudi Aramco's Abqaiq Plants and terminates at the BAPCO refinery in Bahrain.
The pipeline consists of three segments, a 42km onshore Saudi segment, a 28km Bahrain onshore segment and a 42km offshore segment.
Abdullah Mansour, acting executive head of pipelines distribution and terminals at Saudi Aramco, says: 'The commissioning of AB-4 pipeline is another chapter in the special relationship between Saudi Aramco and BAPCO in several aspects including the energy sector that has flourished for more than 73 years and beyond.'
