“Bahrain Oil and Gas Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, oil and gas associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Bahrain’s oil and gas industry.
In this report, we forecast that Bahrain will account for 0.41% of Middle East regional oil demand by 2014, while providing 0.28% of supply. Regional oil use of 7.47mn barrels per day (b/d) in 2001 rose to an estimated 10.64mn b/d in 2009. It should average 10.98mn b/d in 2010 and then rise to around 11.95mn b/d by 2014. Regional oil production was 22.83mn b/d in 2001, and in 2009 averaged an estimated 24.66mn b/d. It is set to rise to 27.18mn b/d by 2014. Oil exports are growing steadily, because demand growth is lagging the pace of supply expansion. In 2001, the region was exporting an average 15.36mn b/d.
