Bahrain's oil and gas sector sparks renewed IOC interest

Report summary

Bahrain's oil and gas sector, the Gulf Cooperation Council’s oldest but smallest producer, has seen an uptick in activity in its upstream sector over the past few months. This turnaround has been driven by the 2018 offshore unconventional and onshore deep gas discoveries, the exploration potential of Block 1 and the re-focusing on EOR to drive production growth at Bahrain's oil and gas fields. Chevron, Total, Eni and JX Nippon have already expressed interest.
