CLG said, in a statement, that it has received the contract from Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) and has plans to expand its output capacity within the region.

A company source said that this contract is second in a row to be awarded by BAPCO in a week. BAPCO last week awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract to Italy's Technip SA for upgrading its refinery from around 267,000 bpd to more than 400,000 bpd on Bahrain's eastern coast.

The source also added that the upgradation of the refinery will involve updating and changing 17 refinery units, with a value between US$250mn and US$1bn each.
