EARLIER this year Saudi Arabianbased Manifa Petroleum Services was one of the many technology service providers that were tasked with the challenge of partnering with Saudi Aramco to reduce the company’s US$200 million maintenance and turnaround budget by a minimum of 4% over the next two years through 2022.
The company showed that by employing Oreco’s non-man entry closed loop tank cleaning systems, the company could not only help Saudi Aramco save money, but also improve safety and environmental practices and drastically reduce tank downtime.
Manifa Petroleum Services invested in the Oreco non-man entry automatic tank cleaning (ATC) technology in 2018 and has been promoting it in the Middle East region ever since.
‘We are just in the process of purchasing two more systems to cover future demand,’ Scott Hahn, Business Development Manager at Manifa Petroleum Services states. ‘Saudi Arabia has over 12,500 tanks so we see plenty of growth potential here.’
