ChelPipe Group has shipped approximately 6,000 tons of large-diameter pipes (LDP) to the Republic of Uzbekistan. Enter Engineering, one of the leaders of the oil and gas construction market in Central Asia, was the customer.
Pipes with a diameter of 1,020 mm, a wall thickness of 10 mm and an external three-layer anti-corrosion coating, are made of steel (K52 strength class). The products will be used for the reconstruction of the existing pipelines in the Republic of Uzbekistan.
ChelPipe fulfilled this order within short timeframes: 30 days elapsed since the receipt of the order to the shipment of finished products. It was possible owing to the well coordinated work with a metal supplier and a specially elaborated logistic scheme.
“An increase of export to the CIS countries is one of the top priority areas of activity of the company”, says Denis Prikhodko, Commercial Director of ChelPipe Group. “In 2017, despite increased competition, the Group boosted its LDP shipment volumes to Uzbekistan, having increased its share in the segment up to 11%. The company intends to strengthen its position in the region in the upcoming years”.
