CPP Complete the First Large-Diameter Hot Tap in Saudi Arabia

2019-01-21

On January 9, with the dismantling of the hot tapping machine, the first large-diameterhot tapping operation of the RasTanuraProject undertaken by CPP is successfully completed.

The hot tapping operation is difficult and the construction risk is high. Especially with the Saudi Aramco, the hot tapping is regarded as the benchmark for contractor's ability. Not only the machine is never handed over to the contractor, but also various data parameters are required and all materials should be carefully inspected. It usually takes more than two months to get one singlehot tap package approved.

CPP project team has actively communicated with the management team of the owners, completes all construction tasks with high quality, and has accumulated experience for subsequent construction.
