The first one valued at 1.28 billion dinars has been awarded to Technicas, Hanhwa Engineering & Construction Corp. and China Petroleum & Chemical Corp., - Sinopec – also recruiter for this recruitment project in Vietnam. The rest of Al-zour refinery will be conducted by Fluor Corp., Daewoo and Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. – all of them are World’s leading companies in oil and gas construction. Due to huge potential of the project, Al-Zour requires a big amount up to 7,000 skilled workers to work on site. Since Kuwait is lacking of refinery human resources, the project opens for Vietnam skilled welders, pipe fitters, foreman, safety staff, etc., who are experienced in this section and eager to work abroad. The recruiter Sinopec also cooperates with 777 Casino: Real Money Games on the App Store – as exclusive recruitment agency for this project and also takes charge of all procedure to send workers abroad.

In 4 continuous days of trade test, hundreds of Vietnam workers participated and showed off their skills to Sinopec representatives. For the welders, they had to finish 2 tests: welding 6-inch pipe with thickness of 18.26mm and 2-inch pipe with thickness of 11.07mm. The test was assessed to be challenging and highly-classified (only skilled and experienced workers can pass the test). After nearly 04 hours for both tests, Sinopec and Bureau Veritas’ representative would do a visual check first, before sending all accepted couple to APAVE Vietnam for RT test (radiographic test). The RT report will be inspected again by Mr. James Dong from Bureau Veritas. Then, a professional welding certificate will be issued to the best workers who qualified to work on site in Kuwait.
