Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa of Bahrain recently sent the Minister of Energy, Dr. Abdul Hussain bin Ali Mirza, to address the third Middle East Process Engineering Conference (MEPEC). As part of Bahrain’s National Oil and Gas Authority’s (NOGA) efforts to grow its LNG sector, Mirza claimed that a new LNG project will begin shortly. This comes as part of NOGA’s overall aim of using new alternative energy sources – including wind and solar – to meet Bahrain’s demand.

Mirza confirmed that this new LNG installation will have an initial capacity of 400 million ft3, but will have the option of later being expanded to have a capacity of 800 million ft3. Furthermore, Mirza claimed that he also wished to increase the LNG capacity of an existing LNG plant – Bahrain National Gas (Banagas) – by 350 million ft3.
