The Russian steel and pipe producer United Metallurgical Company (OMK) has announced that its Novgorod-based steel pipe producer Vyksa Steel Works (Vyksa) plans in 2011 to increase its steel pipe production by 10 percent year on year to 2.2 million mt, of which 1.35 million mt will consist of large diameter (LD) steel pipes.
"We will continue to supply the major projects of Gazprom, Transneft, Rosneft and other companies, and we plan to ship about one million mt of steel pipes to major customers. In particular, in April the delivery of steel pipes will be completed for the construction of the second stage of the Nord Stream international gas pipeline," Vyksa executive director Vladimir Kochetkov said.
