Misr Petroleum Company’s Chairman Mohamed Shaaban met with Mohamed Abdel Raouf, Chairman of the National Petrochemical Alliance, Head of the Engineering Inspection and the Issuance of Validity Certificates for Petroleum Tankers, and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Chemicals Services and Development Center (CSDC) at the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute (EPRI).
The meeting aimed to start activating the cooperation agreement in the engineering inspection to issue validity certificates for petroleum tankers, according to Al Ahram Gate.
The agreement aims to inspect vehicles transporting petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, mazut and other materials for the company’s transportation fleet and to issue certificates of validity after conducting engineering inspections by the EPRI using the latest robotic devices and equipment to ensure their suitability for transporting petroleum products in accordance with international codes and the Egyptian Standards and Quality Authority. This is in order to uphold the safety of transport fleets, public and private property, and the safety of lives and places of loading and unloading.
Shaaban highlighted the company’s keenness to implement the highest standards of occupational safety and health for its fleet and its employees, in the light of the directives of the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources.
The meeting included a presentation made by Abdel Raouf about the EPRI’s capabilities to conduct engineering inspections of mineral facilities, storage warehouses for petroleum materials, as well as transportation and production lines with the latest technological systems and in accordance with international standards.
