Plant Shut Down

My plant have to stop for shutdown maintenance work today, 4 weeks earlier than the expected date. We have to entertain the sudden shutdown because lack of CPO. I was instructed by my bos to come to work in afternoon and stay until night. This is to supervise and monitor the shutdown stopage of plant, cleaning/maintenance activities and plant start up. My senior colleague will cover the normal shift. I'll be working like this for at least one week. Well, its ok, I don't mind about it. So, far the plant stopage run smooth and is few hours ahead of schedule. Some of the manholes of the vessel have been opened just now. From the steam test, we found 10 leaking points that need to be dealed with, either by welding or replacing the portion/pipe that cannot be welded. I've been recording all the activities and will produced a complete shutdown report for the management after the activities end.
