Hot and cold pipe bends and pipe joints accounted for the bulk of the bends shipments. SOT shipped more than 8,000 tons of its products to Rimera’s key customers, Gazprom and Transneft. Shipments to Transneft doubled on 2011 to 1,776 tons. The increase was driven by implementation of the first phase of the large-scale Zapolyarye–Purpe project, and packaged supply lots won by the two companies. The Gazprom shipments in 2012 went to the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta project and in the form of pipe joints for the Sosnogorskaya and Novoprivodnenskaya compressor stations.
MSA a.s. shipments in 2012 grew by 24.9 percent on 2011. Ball valves accounted for most of the shipped products at 86.4 percent. The largest shipments were made to Gazprom, to South Korea’s Korea Gas Corporation for the Dae-Gu, Seo-Jong, etc. stations, and to D.E.F.T. Polska for OGP Gaz System.
“The companies in our Trunk Pipeline Equipment business performed well as expected. Despite an insignificant decrease in the market size, we have managed to meet our sales targets and achieve an increase of more than 13 percent on 2011. Our synergy with the pipe division was not insignificant to this, helping our customers feel the efficiency of the integrated approach,” Mikhail Zhamkov, sales director at the Trunk Pipeline Equipment Commercial Directorate, commented on the results of the year.
SOT is expected to ship more than 1,500 tons of its products in the first quarter of 2013 for the repair and maintenance needs of the energy sector and implementation of pipeline projects, such as the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta-2 trunk pipeline, the second phase of the Zapolyarye-Purpe pipeline system, the Pelyatinskoye Gas Condensate Field–Dudinka condensate pipeline, and others. MSA a.s. will ship valves to Gazprom and Novatek in 2013.
