A YERP procedure consists of a revision or an overlay and the Saudi Aramco (SA) document with the same name. Radiographic Examination Document No. An overlay establishes any required changes to the SA document and specifically defines the changes.: 1 Issue Date: 13 October 2009 PREFACE This procedure is a revision or an overlay to a Saudi Aramco Engineering Procedure (SAEP) for the scope of the Yanbu Export Refinery Project. If the SA document is to be used without any changes the overlay will state there are no changes required. The YERP Procedure Index identifies which YERP documents are new and the ones that relate to SA documents that are unchanged.
