Russian pipe manufacturers prepare to fight against foreign competitors for the supply of pipes for the second stage of the Nord Stream gas pipeline. Analysts have estimated that the total value of the order could be around $3 billion, of which the Russian players, despite the lower cost of the production, at best, will get half. The rest will go to foreigners, since the project needs the support of the European Union.
Today, the Swiss company Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the same name project of expansion of the Nord Stream gas pipeline from Russia to Europe under the Baltic Sea, will start accepting applications for the tender to supply pipes for the two lines with total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year, the Kommersant’s sources in the pipe industry report.

The company doesn’t disclose participants, the budget and other conditions of the tender; Nord Stream 2 will report the term of the tender completion and its results later.
The amount of investment in the project of the Gazprom’s gas transportation system Power of Siberia, taking into account the development of fields, is estimated at $55 billion, the head of the Russian Energy Ministry Alexander Novak stated.
"Power of Siberia is a large-scale project, the value of which with the development of fields will be $55 billion, to date the assessment is so. And it's a huge order for our industry, because more than 90% of the equipment, pipes and other things will be ordered, of course, at our enterprises. Today, due to the fact that the construction has begun, our metallurgical enterprises have received a new order,"- said Mr. Novak.
