Our work methodology includes:

  • Detailed job risk assessment
  • Decommissioning and inspection HAZOP study
  • Planning activities based on existing site condition
  • List of equipment and materials required
  • Inspection Procedure
  • Tank building location and specification
  • Emptying the tank
  • Key process parameters
  • Tank valve isolation for heating purpose
  • Inerting of system and purging with nitrogen
  • Gas sampling
  • Manway opening sequence
  • Danger of asphyxiant gas
  • Purging the tank with air
  • Readiness for confined entry
  • Non Destructive Inspection (VT, PT, MT, MFL, HT, RT etc)
