Palantir’s Foundry Platform and Artificial Intelligence Platform (AIP) will be deployed in a three-year agreement to help Bapco Upstream maximize its return on investment on energy production in the country and support its mission to connect the energy infrastructure of the Kingdom of Bahrain in an unprecedented way.

Palantir has worked in the energy sector for more than a decade, helping customers from small operators to supermajors and national oil companies meet challenges and capture opportunities throughout the value chain, from production to distribution, to supporting the reduction of carbon emissions.

Palantir’s newest platform, AIP, enables organizations to bring the power of large-language models, and other cutting-edge AI, to their enterprise networks, private data, and core operations - with maximum security and trust. The platform is designed to bring in siloed and disconnected data sources, logic assets, and systems of action into a single common operating picture, enabling users to optimize their decision-making.

“We are thrilled to announce our strategic partnership with Palantir. This collaboration marks a pivotal moment for Bapco Upstream as it aligns seamlessly with our commitment to innovation and business excellence,” said Johann Pleininger, CEO of Bapco Upstream. “We are poised to unlock new possibilities in our upstream operations by delivering value and driving efficiency throughout the organization.”

"Bapco Energies is positioning itself at the forefront of the AI revolution in energy production,” said Alex Karp, co-founder and chief executive officer of Palantir Technologies. “We are proud of this partnership, which will enable Bapco Upstream to boost output, improve efficiency, and meet Bahrain's energy goals.”
