According to him, TMK already sells small volumes for spot sales and negotiates about long-term contracts.

Basically, the company says, products from the Volzhsky pipe plant (VTZ, the production in 2015 made up 1.3 million tons) will be exported, prior to the sanction it was the largest supplier of pipes for the oil companies of Iran (the country received up to 40% of the export).
