Pipe companies might not keep production at the level of 2015 due to fall in purchases by Transneft and GazpromEdited by Rhod Mackenzie / 2016-02-19 03:57:51
ChTPZ group shipped 2.019 mln tons of pipes to consumers in 2015 (by 3% less than in 2014), the company reports.
The insignificant shipment reduction is connected with the completion of a number of large projects of Transneft, delay in realization of pipeline projects in the CIS and the general demand fall for pipes in the market from the part of the industrial, energy and construction enterprises.
In 2015 compared with 2014, ChTPZ increased the shipment of seamless pipes by 4% to 1,081 thousand tons. 399 thousand tons of OCTG pipes of this volume were shipped to consumers, including 8.2 thousand tons with Premium-thread. The growth of shipment in the OCTG segment against 2014 made up 49% (+132 thousand tons).
The growth of volumes became possible due to the held modernization of rolling capacities of ChTPZ group and demand rise from the part of Russian pipe consumers due to the realized program of import substitution.
The previous record was set 5 years ago in 2010, when the mill produced 943.4 thousand tons of steel.
Unique plate mill 5000 was commissioned in 2009. The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin participated in the ceremony of launching the unit.
Subsidiary of ChTPZ - Eterna – has been included in the list of suppliers of Gazprom and Transneft. According to the press centre of the company, this gave the enterprise the right to participate in all tenders of the oil and gas giants.
ChTPZ and Rosnano were participants in the building of production at the site of the Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant, which will create more than 400 jobs by the end of the year, the ChTPZ Group reports.
According to the press service, the plant, which is scheduled to open in October, will produce up to 10 thousand tons of pipeline fittings by using nanostructure materials.
In the first six months of 2015, the delivery of steel products from hot rolling mill 5000 of MMK increased by 34% as compared with the same period of the previous year. The increase amounted to 142 thousand tons.
