In the first nine months of 2015, the Russian index of mineral resources mining grew by 0.3%, and the index of mining of metal ores increased by 1.6%. The index of metallurgical production and output of finished metal products fell by 5.7%.
In the non-ferrous metallurgy production the index decreased by 8.1% due to the reduced putput of products of increased technological readiness, delivered to the domestic market. The index of mining and enrichment of non-ferrous metals grew by 3.1%. The domestic demand for non-ferrous metals decreased by 20%, while the export grew by 1.7%.

«Caspian Oil&Gas-2015» workshop took place in Baku. MMK participated in it.
The main focus was made on the products for the oil and gas sector which is actively developing in the region: proved oil reserves at the Caspian shelf are assessed at over 10 bln tons.
In large infrastructure projects on oil and gas transportation of the Caspian the products of the mill-5000 of MMK might be required. The mill produces high-quality tubing stock for producers of large diameter pipes. Due to its unique characteristics MMK participates in the majority of large pipeline projects in the CIS.
Azerbaijan actively constructs pipelines for oil and gas pumping. Among them are Baku-Novorossiysk, Baku-Supsa, Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum, TANAP. The realization of the largest project on the foundation of new oil and gas processing and oil chemicals complex near Baku has stated.
Today the 22nd International Exhibition "Caspian Oil and Gas-2015", which takes part in the Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Plant, started its work in Baku.
The widest range of products and plant businesses, the Group OJSC "MMK", is traditionally on the stand of the largest enterprise of metallurgical industry of Russia.
