Established with a paid up capital of $160 million, the Company employs 481 people of whom 92% are Bahrainis and considers its national employees its true asset and continuous catalyst for all of its international, regional and local achievements.

It has the capacity to capture 450 metric tons of carbon dioxide per day from the reformer flue gases to improve its carbon foot print.
