Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have signed contracts worth around $300 million to lay a new 350,000-barrel per day (bpd) oil pipeline between the two countries, with the link due to be operational in 2018.
The development project will transform Bahrain International Airport into a facility that is at par with Bahrain’s leading position within the industry. The project will build on the Kingdom’s historical position, transforming it into a vibrant platform for travels and reinforcing the role it plays as Bahrain’s gateway to the world. Upon the project’s completion, it is expected that the airport’s capacity will increase to accommodate 13.5 million passengers a year.

Bahrain Investment Wharf (BIW) is one of the largest development projects in Bahrain, and the only privately-owned, operated and managed industrial park in the Kingdom. Covering an area of 1.7 million square metres in the new Hidd Industrial Development Zone, this groundbreaking project is a mixed-use industrial, business, logistics, information technology, commercial and residential development estate.
