Note re: REFINERY on BAHRAIN ISLAND .
Mr. BELGRAVE sajs he and SHAIKH were told by Messrs
JANSON and LOMBARDI in March 1933 that they couldn't possibly
say whether they would refine locally or not. They might
have a plant for local consumption (in oil fields?).
2. Major HOLMES told Mr.BELGRAVE a few months ago that it
might soon be possible for the BAHRAIN PETROLEUM COMPANY to
sell crude oil to the BAHRAIN POWER HOUSE^ Mr.BELGRAVE hasn't
asked for any as Mr.STEELE says DIESEL engines need specially
3. Mr.BELGRAVE knows SHAIKH wants a local refinery (on a
Rerl . Mr.BELGRAVE never heard of any idea of competition
in Eastern market and considers it is much too premature for the
BAHRAIN PETROEEUM COMPANY to think of such markets.
Re;2 . Mr.BELGRAVE will sound Mr.STEELE on latest talk
and Mr.STEELE ws well up with the engineering side of the
BAHRAIN PETROLEUM COMPANY 'S works and plans.
Ret3 . The SHAIKH always hopes for Refinery to bring lots
of work for local people . Mr.BELGRAVE says though SHAIKH has not
been enquiring lately it is always in his mind and is his desire.
4. I will endeavour to find a suitable occasion for an
enquiry from Mr.SKINNER.
