    before any welding to be carried out , you must wash the tank well, using high quantity of water , any residue on internal surfaces of any tank is hazardous, causing an explosion , such incident is an indication of low quality safety procedures, i do believe that since 2003 iraq is going down the drain , so it is not something strange
