Radioactive Import for Oilfield Client

Scope:

Transport Radioactive sources from a manufacturer in the US to a large oil & gas company in the UAE in liaison with multiple stakeholders globally.

Challenges:

  • Coordination with multiple Entities & Agencies at all stages of shipment from Export clearance in the US till delivery at site in the UAE.
  • Establishment of effective and efficient communication channels clearly defining roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of all associates.
  • To bring all stakeholders and associates on same page with regards to documentation & compliance requirement. It was a major challenge since entities were based in different countries and were not familiar with the guidelines and laws of foreign land.
  • Conflict in Client’s internal Policy & Import Regulation of destination country warranted Third Party as Importer of record.
  • Class 7 DG Cargo is always a challenge for expeditious clearance at port of import. This being an urgent requirement at site, was more of a challenge

Course of action:

  • Overall SEVEN organizations were involved in this shipment and Peeraj successfully established clear lines of communication with all parties.
  •  Peeraj proposed and devised an efficient and viable solution for seamless clearance of Cargo at UAE Customs.
  •  Owing to Peeraj’s past experience and records, the source manufacturer reposed its complete confidence in our capabilities and the team was able to take over
    end-to-end process which included compliance with regulatory requirements,
    securing approvals & completing documentation at various stages while maintaining
    seamless communication.

Wins:

  • Peeraj delivered goods within committed schedule without additional cost to the client
    preventing huge financial losses by ensuring ZERO downtime at the rigs where these
    Radioactive sources were needed.
  • Our client is extremely satisfied and actively recommends our name to its associates and contractors for any shipment requirement and specially for shipment involving Radioactive sources.
