US Steel has announced it will restart its No. 1 Electric-Weld Pipe Mill at Lone Star Tubular Operations in Lone Star, Texas. The company said the mill was idled in 2016 due to challenging market conditions for tubular products created by fluctuating oil prices, reduced rig counts and high levels of unfairly traded imports.

The company said the restart process will begin immediately and will be completed in early third quarter 2019. The mill has an annual capacity of approximately 400,000 tons, and produces full-body normalized electric-welded pipe in size ranges 7” to 16” outside diameter.

“We are encouraged by an improvement in market conditions and an increased customer demand for tubular products that are mined, melted and made in America,” said President and Chief Executive Officer David B. Burritt.
