INTRODUCTION

The Saudi Ethylene & Polyethylene Co. in the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given Kiwa Nederland B.V. (the former Kiwa Gastec Certification B.V.) in the Netherlands, accredited in accordance with the ISO/IEC 17025 document, an order to perform Mechanical testing and Physical analyses on the high density TASNEE 100 Black PE-pipe grade with Batch-number JH0347W03. The scope of these Mechanical tests and Physical analyses is covered by the present valid ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation of Kiwa Nederland B.V. in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands

The order has been given by Dr. Laid Demdoum, National Petrochemical Industrialization Marketing Co., Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Direct contact persons in this project: Mr. Hafid Boufersaoui, Saudi Ethylene & Polyethylene Co. in the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Mr. Guus Setz, Kiwa Nederland B.V. in the Royal Kingdom of the Netherlands. Mr. Werner Rothhft, intermediate contact person, Lyondell-Basell in the Republic of Germany.
