Khartsyzsk Pipe Works (KhPW), the pipe producing subsidiary of the Ukrainian group Metinvest, is currently undertaking certification of its products to enable it to supply its pipes for the underwater sections of gas pipelines, Andrey Parkhomchuk, sales director of Metinvest's steel and rolled products division, has disclosed.

The current certification is being carried out in order to boost the prospects of KhPW's participation in the Nord Stream gas pipeline, which is to link Russia and the European Union via the Baltic Sea, Mr. Parkhomchuk added.

Speaking about the company's participation in other massive pipeline projects, Parkhomchuk emphasized that the company has completed the delivery of one million metric tons of pipes for the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil pipeline which is currently being built with the aim of direct transportation of Russian oil to the Middle East and Southeast Asian markets.
