Pan Arabian Office Co.

Pan Arabian services all the big oil and gas operating companies in Saudi Arabia and considers it a necessity to offer more than just good quality products. Over the past 2 years, Pan Arabian organized already several technical trainings with their partners for steam traps and actuators, for which they received very positive feedback from their participants (Aramco, Sabic, Ma’Aden). In the coming months the training center shall be extensively promoted, offering a fixed training schedule as well as custom made trainings.

Safety First

Pan Arabian and Netherlocks have extensive experience in performing valve interlocking surveys, selecting the right valve interlocks as per process flow sequence, and subsequent installation and commissioning of locking equipment. The new training center is equipped with several demo setups and has been launched to promote and present interlocking solutions. This includes a PSV system and a pig launching setup, where all valves are accommodated with Netherlocks valve interlocks. These setups are used to teach field personnel about operating interlocked valves and to practice installation and maintenance activities. The center also has a lecture room, where technical courses are offered .
