Hertel team in Qatar achieve two million hours without an LTI at Shell Pearl GTL
On 20th June 2010 Hertel MSL reached the milestone of two million manhours without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) at the Shell Pearl GTL plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.
An Achievement Award was presented to Hertel MSL Site Manager, Jason Pearce, and HSEQ Co-ordinator, John Sheerin, by Shell Safety Manager, Mike Gibb, and Chiyoda Hyundai Corporation (CHC)’s Safety Manager, Royston McDonald.
“We would like to congratulate Hertel MSL,” said Mike Gibb, “on achieving this milestone and for the company’s continuing efforts to ensure procedures are followed when working on the Feed Gas Preparation (FGP) works at the Pearl GTL project. Your personnel have conducted themselves in a professional manner ensuring high quality workmanship without any incidents”.
“Hertel MSL employees have been working on this project since early 2008 and this is a magnificent achievement especially when you consider the high risk activities on site”, said Jason.
Shell Pearl GTL is currently one of the world’s largest construction projects with a workforce of over 50,000. Once completed, Shell will reportedly have invested US$ 19 billion on this joint venture, cementing Qatar’s place as the GTL capital of the world.
