Bahrain Petroleum Company
Stepping into the CEO role at the Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), Dr Pete Bartlett was keenly aware of the organisation’s history and its enduring position in the Middle Eastern oil and gas sector. The industry veteran and self-described “amateur historian” recalls that he had little hesitation in applying for the position when the opportunity arose. Having spent more than three decades working in oil and gas, the previous 14 years of which were with US multinational Chevron, Pete brought a wide range of experience to the role. He explains that the international exposure gained at Chevron had him well prepared upon joining Bapco in 2014.
The company produces high-quality Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Naphtha, Gasoline, Kerosene, Aviation Turbine Fuel, Ultra Low Sulp hur Diesel, Heavy Lube Distillate, Fuel Oil and Asphalt, which form the core of its business.
