Located in St. Petersburg assets of JSC "Severstal" — Izhora Pipe Mill and Mill 5000 LPC-3 CherMK — ready to participate in the new transportation projects of JSC "Gazprom", called "The Power of Siberia."
This was stated by Director General of "Severstal" Alexey Mordashov during the next meeting of "Gazprom" with the leaders of the domestic pipe companies, which took place on the basis of the Izhora Pipe Plant.
The meeting was attended by the Chairman of the Management Board of OAO "Gazprom" Alexey Miller and executives pipe companies. The meeting discussed the willingness of companies — manufacturers of large diameter pipes produce new kinds of pipes for the construction of gas pipeline "South Stream" and "The Power of Siberia", as well as familiar with the high-tech facility for the production of sheet metal, fabrication of large diameter pipes.
"Izhora Pipe Plant has been successfully cooperating with" Gazprom "in the development of innovative products, including the mega-project" The Power of Siberia ", which should be implemented according to the highest international standards, — said Alexei Mordashov. — The level of technological competence "Severstal" will reduce the time to develop and apply technology for the manufacture of pipes for this project. "
The main gas pipeline "Yakutia-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok", later called "The Power of Siberia" from Chayandinskoye oil and gas field to Vladivostok will be built by 2017. For pipes that will be used for the construction of the gas pipeline "Power of Siberia", applied higher requirements. The system will pass through an area with high seismic activity, which requires the pipe to ensure safe transportation of gas.
Development of pipes was carried out in the framework of long-term scientific and technological cooperation, designed in 2012? 2016. A special focus of the program on the production of tubular products for the implementation of offshore deepwater pipelines, exploration and production of steel pipes for the transport of hydrogen sulfide gas and pipes crossing the areas of active tectonic faults.
In addition, the company is currently "Severstal" holds certification activities to confirm the technical opportunities to participate in the tender for the supply of pipes for the construction of the offshore section of the pipeline system "South Stream".
Izhora Pipe Plant is also one of the first in Russia and CIS companies have mastered the production of high-strength steel pipes of high-K65 on an industrial scale. Pipes are delivered to the construction site of the main gas pipelines "Bovanenko — Ukhta 'differing difficult climatic conditions with low temperatures.
In 2010, for the development of high-strength steel pipes of high K65 employees of the company have been awarded the Prize of the Government of the Russian Federation in 2010 in the field of science and technology.
