TMK has supplied more than 5,000 tonnes of seamless steel pipes to the Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) in the UAE.
The 16 inch pipes will be used to transfer gas from the Mahani facility to the SNOC Sajaa Gas Plant.
The pipes produced at TMK's Volzhsky Pipe Plant are intended for use in aggressive environments.
The 3LPP coating pipe will be used in the construction of a 22 km long pipeline to feed the gas processing plant.
Under the integrated contract between the two companies, TMK has also supplied SNOC with other structural components and equipment used in pipeline installation.
"The UAE energy companies are TMK's key customers in the Middle East. We have built a strong reputation as a supplier of tubular products for various purposes, including steel line pipe and premium connections. We are proud to participate in the development of the first onshore gas field in Sharjah in 37 years," said Vladimir Oborsky, TMK's vice president for sales.
"This is our first collaboration with SNOC, and it has enabled our expansion in the UAE market. Despite significant transportation restrictions due to the pandemic, we were able to deliver all shipments strictly on schedule.”
In January, SNOC and its partner Eni announced the start-up of production from the Mahani-1 gas well, marking the commencement of gas production from the Mahani Field, in Sharjah Area B.
The announcement came within a year of the discovery of gas in the field, labelled as the first new onshore discovery in Sharjah for 37 years.
