Exhibition exploring history of oil in Bahrain opens

An exhibition exploring the history of oil in Bahrain has opened.

Milton Lipp – Early years of BAPCO opened at the Bahrain National Museum on Sunday and will run until February 29.

Lipp, who passed away in 1970, served as the general manager and then the Resident Vice President of the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO).

BAPCO has been vital in shaping the economy of Bahrain since its creation in 1929, and helped Bahrain capitalise on its fossil fuels wealth.

The exhibition will focus on Lipp’s life and achievements, particularly his work developing the company’s profile and the relationships he built with the rulers of Bahrain.
