The company also plans to fully meet Gazprom’s needs for products that are required for developing new gas and oil fields.
In order to expand into new market segments in which pipes cannot be made by welding, Gazpromtrubinvest launched a project to manufacture seamless pipes. A cutting-edge three-roll technology will be used to produce seamless pipes with geometric precision comparable to that of welded products. With the successful implementation of this project, Gazpromtrubinvest will become a unique and highly diverse production complex, manufacturing both welded and seamless pipes for the oil and gas sector.
