Maintenance section boost for Bapco
Manama, June 12, 2013
Bapco's major maintenance section has set a new benchmark in the first half of the year, achieving success in various projects undertaken, said a report.
The section successfully replaced 1,950-feet length of piping of number 11 sea-line from Wharf to New Island Wharf in the sub-sea section, reported the Gulf daily News, our sister publication.
In addition, the section completed repair work on 24 unit rundown lines of the fluid catalytic cracker unit complex in order to meet the 2013 turnaround and inspection shutdown schedule.
Several projects were also carried out for the first time and completed successfully on schedule in the gas distribution network, said the GDN report.
Some of the jobs carried out were the replacement of two 12-inch underground gas lines, each 250 metre in length, along with the enhancement of safety by adding a new cathodic protection system in the gas distribution network from Riffa distribution point to customer Riffa power station.
Corroded sections of pipelines in several locations of the network were also successfully coated to protect them from thinning and subsequent leaking, the report said.
Further, the major maintenance section assisted in phase two of the intelligent pigging of gas pipelines.
Importantly, the cleaning of number three inlet flume from LLPH to HLPH was completed in 25 days, well ahead of the scheduled time.
Finally, the section also assisted OS&E in the hydrostatic test of AB pipelines, which was completed on time, rounding off the various achievements.-TradeArabia News Service
