    Underwater inspection of oil terminal in Al-Mu’ajiz, Saudi Arabia

    12/06/2011

     A team of Hydrex diver/technicians performed inspection work on some sixty legs of an oil terminal located in Yanbu, just north of Al-Mu’ajiz in Saudi Arabia.

    The facility had been closed since the start of the first Gulf War and is planned to be put back into operation twenty years later after a full refit. For this reason Hydrex was asked to carry out an inspection of the legs of the terminal. The team also performed the necessary measurements to allow for a full assessment of the underwater part of the workstation.

    The scope of the work consisted of an inspection of the weld seams, a close visual inspection, thickness measurements, cathodic protection measurements and an inspection of the general condition of the construction. The Hydrex team consisted of CSWIP certified divers who carried out the inspection to a depth of thirty meters to the highest quality and safety standards.
