Rimera Group opens new washing plant in Noyabrsk

NCTB opened a washing plant at its tubing repair facility in Noyabrsk on February 26. The line was started in the presence of Rimera General Director Olga Naumova and Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz General Director Pavel Kryukov.
The modernization project comprises a series of improvements to the manufacturing line. NCTB bought new pressing equipment and upgraded two tubing repair plants. The launch of the new tubing washing equipment was the final stage of the modernization project.
Rimera’s investment in the washing plant alone exceeded RUB 23 mln. The equipment is designed for cleaning the interior and exterior surfaces of tubing pipes from every type of soluble petrochemicals and insoluble contaminants. The projected capacity of the plant is up to 2 800 tubing pipes per day, which completely covers the needs of the tubing repair plants. Besides, the use of a new pipe cleaning technology will help NCTB save RUB 8 mln. per year.
“Today’s event is a further step toward satisfying the growing needs of our customers,” Olga Naumova said at the opening ceremony. “These steps include the startup of the Nyagan site last spring, and the opening of the new tubing repair plant in Muravlenko in September 2012. The Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz and Muravlenkovskneft business units are among our group’s key customers.”
On the whole, Rimera Group’s deliveries to Gazprom Neft in 2012 more than doubled on 2011. “In the near future, we are planning to expand considerably the range of comprehensive services we provide in Noyabrsk by including servicing of oil production equipment and an equipment lease option,” Mrs. Naumova said.
“Noyabrsk Central Tube Base is a strategic partner of Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegaz,” said Mr. Krykov. “It is my firm belief that our relationship will continue to grow in a partner-like manner in the future,” Mr. Krykov said during the opening ceremony.
