Found off Bahrain's west coast, if it is verified by an international oil consortium
as being technically and economically recoverable it could be a boon for the nation's economy.
IF VERIFIED BY AN INTERNATIONAL OIL CONSORTIUM
AS BEING TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY RECOVERABLE--COULD STIMULATE PRIVATE INVESTMENT IN THE COUNTRY'S ENERGY SECTOR IN THE NEAR TERM.
The discovery of hydrocarbon deposits containing at least 80 billion barrels of tight oil and 10-20 trillion cubic feet of deep natural gas in a new offshore field off the west coast of Bahrain - if verified by an international oil consortium
as being technically and economically recoverable - could stimulate private investment in the country's energy sector in the near term.
The find, if verified by an international oil consortium
as being technically and economically recoverable, could stimulate private investment in the country's energy sector in the near term, and in the medium term could increase government oil- and gas-related revenue and reduce the country's fiscal and current account deficit, according to Moody's.

The Caspian reserves were discovered in July 2000 by an international oil consortium
, involving a Japanese government-funded oil exploration firm.
The meeting was also a setback for the pipeline because the debate caused a split in the ranks of the Azerbaijan International Oil Consortium
(ATOC) producing Caspian oil and exacerbated the perceived reserves and throughput volume uncertainty.
The U.S., Turkish, and Azerbaijani governments support the MEP route, but the Azerbaijani International Oil Consortium
(AIOC), which includes British Petroleum/Amoco, is resisting the plan.
Oil exports will increase substantially as oil begins flowing from two major joint ventures currently underway in the Caspian region: the Azerbaijan International Oil Consortium
(AIOC) in Azerbaijan and the Tengizchevroil project in Kazakhstan.
