8 June, 2017 JSC Gazpromtrubinvest and PAO Severstal confirmed their strategic partnership.
In Cherepovets, the meeting of the Coordination Board took place, during which JSC Gazpromtrubinvest, one of the leading national manufacturers of welded OCTG pipes, and PAO Severstal, one of the largest, vertically integrated steel and companies in the world, discussed the main directions of further strategic cooperation.
The top management of JSC Gazpromtrubinvest and PAO Severstal discussed issues of technical cooperation for further improvement of quality of metal supplied and products delivery as well as prospective directions of development of new types of products. The participants paid special attention to the properties of OCTG that JSC Gazpromtrubinvest produces from hot-roller coiled steel of PAO Severstal.
During the meeting the sides agreed to continue joint work on selection of the steel intended for manufacture of casing of Grade K55. Also, PAO Severstal will go on optimizing the production process of coiled steel of high strength with enhanced anticorrosion properties to be used in manufacture of tubing at JSC Gazpromtrubinvest.


1 May, 2017 Project on organization of manufacture of seamless pipes.
In order to take over new market segments, where pipes used cannot be made by welding process, JSC Gazpromtrubinvest starts a project on the organization of manufacture of seamless pipes. One of the most sophisticated technologies (3-roll-method) will be applied and this will ensure precise geometrical parameters of seamless products comparable to welded ones. After the project, a unique OCTG production complex for both welded and seamless pipes will be formed on the base of JSC Gazpromtrubinvest.


25 December, 2016 New technical requirements for oil/gas pipelines of enhanced cold and corrosion resistance.
On June 01, 2016, new technical requirements TU 1303-017-25955489-2016 Electric-welded steel oil/gas line pipes of enhanced cold and corrosion resistance were introduced. These requirements cover steel oil/gas pipelines made by high-frequency welding with one longitudinal seam, Grades K48-K56, with enhanced cold resistance. The pipes are acceptable for the use in the Lukoil Group facilities located in the climatic regions of the Far North or equal to them and have cold resistance at -60ºC and higher.
On December 20, 2016, technical requirements TU 1303-016-25955489-2016 Electric-welded steel line pipe of enhanced cold and corrosion resistance for the construction of PAO NK Rosneft deposit facilities became effective. These technical requirements cover high-frequency welded steel oil and gas line pipe with one longitudinal seam, heat-treated, Grades K52 and K56, with enhanced cold and corrosion resistance in H2S- and CO2- environments. The pipes are acceptable for the use in the PAO NK Rosneft subsidiaries’s facilities located in the climatic regions of the Far North or equal to them and have cold resistance at -60ºC and higher.
On December 22, 2016, technical requirements TU 1303-019-25955489-2016 Electric-welded steel oil and gas line pipes of enhanced cold and corrosion resistance were introduced
These technical requirements cover high-frequency welded steel oil and gas line pipes with one longitudinal seam, Grades K48-K56, with enhanced cold and corrosion resistance in H2S- environment. The pipes are acceptable for the use in the PAO Gasprom Neft subsidiaries’s facilities located in the climatic regions of the Far North or equal to them and have cold resistance at - 60ºC and higher.
The pipes made to the above technical requirements are intended for the construction of technological and oilfield pipelines with the working pressure up to 7,4 Mpa for conveying gas, oil and oil products (flow lines, oil collector, and others) as well as for high-pressure and low-pressure water pipelines.


1 December, 2015 Startup of Medium Diameter Pipe Production Complex Medium Diameter Pipe Production Complex was put into operation with the capacity of 350 thousand tons of products per year.
It has been the largest project for the last 10 years in the Kostroma region. The investments totaled 12 billions of roubles. The design and the construction of the Complex lasted for three and a half years. More than 500 high-tech jobs were created.
The production premises of Medium Diameter Pipe Production Complex having 87 thousand square meters are equipped with innovative, high-tech equipment of leading global manufacturers, like SMS MEER, BRONX, EMAG, ELTI and others.
The pipe range is from to 127 to 426 mm in outside diameter.
One of the characteristics of the production is the inspection of each technological operation.
The Complex will allow us to replace about 17 % of the same imported OCTG pipe:
- with gas-tight Premium thread connections including the thread connections for directional and horizontal wells;
- with enhanced anticorrosion features.
