Eight thousands miles away, our client Saudi Aramco celebrates their API Q2 Certification
Published March 28, 2018
With the delivery of our Congratulatory Banner, the Wellhead Shop at our client Saudi Aramco, took the opportunity to celebrate last year’s big accomplishment of becoming API Q2 certified.
It has been a few years since we began the journey of helping the Wellhead Shop of Saudi Aramco implement a Quality Management System with the aim of becoming API Q2 certified. While the project was completed successfully in early 2016 with the help of Mireaux’s Consultants and our Web QMS software, it took some time to sort through issues and get API scheduled to visit the facility, situated in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia, 40 miles southwest of the Dhahran-Dammam-Khobar metropolitan area. Finally, in 2017 the Wellhead Shop, achieved API Q2 certification, becoming a model for continual improvement within Saudi Aramco.
Miriam Boudreaux, CEO of Mireaux Management Solutions commented, “We had made the Congratulatory Banner back in 2016, but issues with the API application, caused the certification delays. By the time the Wellhead Shop had achieved certification in 2017, Mireaux had already won 2 more contracts in Saudi Arabia, so finally we decided to attempt to hand deliver the banner, through one of our consultants. It was really a great feeling, as if we were giving them a Star Wars lightsaber.”

After we received the pictures of the celebration, we were quite delighted to see that the Wellhead Shop Management at Saudi Aramco had organized a small gathering and invited all their employees who work so hard daily to ensure their Quality Management System is preserved.”

Nowadays, Mireaux and the Wellhead Shop at Saudi Aramco enjoy close-ties, as Mireaux provides its Web QMS software as well as Document Control assistance on an ongoing basis. As an interesting factoid, the Saudi Aramco project was to become the last Consulting project Mireaux’s CEO Boudreaux would lead. After 4 trips to Saudi, Boudreaux decided it was time to focus on strategic planning and the growth of Mireaux.
