the high-performance steel products and solutions required in every corner of the industry.
Our products for energy-related applications are extensively used to develop, produce, refine, transport and store energy sources including oil and gas. Produced under strict quality assurance practices, they can provide the strength, impact toughness, weldability and workability required to withstand harsh conditions including those found in the ocean and polar regions. Current customers include local and international energy companies, heavy-duty equipment makers, pressure vessel makers and offshore and wind power structure makers.
Its typical applications include casing and tubing steel pipes that are some of the most critical components of mining oil or gas offshore or onshore. Also called “for oil wells” as opposed to “for transportation” this steel usually requires hot rolling before being used for this application.
