PDO’s Message about STST Performance at Yibal. - 16/08/2013
PDO’s Message about STST Performance at Yibal.

PDO MD’s message praising STST HSE performance during a recent emergency at Yibal.

Quote

I’m also very proud of the achievements of operations and engineering staff and contractors STST and CPI at Yibal who went beyond the call of duty to restore production as quickly and safely as possible after the serious fire in December. The blaze damaged three oil transfer pumps but the team devised a temporary but effective solution by converting one of the three undamaged water transfer pumps into an oil pump.

The project, which included two weeks of engineering activities and assurance reviews, was completed in 47 days and has enabled PDO to add 1,100m3/d of deferred oil into the Yibal portfolio. Restoring production in such a short period and without a lost time injury was due to a combination of hard work, tremendous collaboration, good planning and the efficient management of HSE and site activities, including the use of surplus material from PDO stores.
