According to pessimistic forecasts, in 2015, the demand for steel in Russia and the CIS countries will decrease by 15%. The production of pipes is growing, but Gazprom has already canceled a number of large tenders.

MMK and ChTPZ tested by Power of Siberia

The largest Russian Energy Project - the Power of Siberia pipeline - has demanded a special cohesion from metallurgists and pipe manufacturers. The most important thing for MMK and ChTPZ is to provide high quality of sheet metal and large diameter pipes. Workflow participants "compared notes" at the site of the Chelyabinsk pipe rolling plant (ChTPZ).
MK supplies its products for almost all major pipeline projects in Russia and the CIS states. Technological capabilities of MMK to produce products for the oil and gas industry improved significantly since the launch of a modern complex for the production of hot rolled plate, which included mill 5000 with maximum capacity of up to 1.5 million tons per year, CC machine-6 and secondary steel treatment in 2009-2010. This allowed MMK to take part in such projects as the Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok, Bovanenkovo - Ukhta, Ukhta - Torzhok, Southern Corridor, Beineu - Bozoi - Shymkent, Central Asia - China pipelines, the Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean oil pipeline and the second stage of the Baltic Pipeline System pipeline.
The cooperation of metallurgists and pipe producers grow together with the scale of new projects - this year they were joined by Power of Siberia.
