SOT to Become the Only Russian Supplier of Pipe Bends for the Third Leg of Uzbekistan-China Gas Pipeline

According to the agreement, the client will receive around 350 tonnes of SOT products.
1,067 mm hot-formed bends with 6DN bend radius are designed to withstand 9.8 MPa pressure. The special feature of the project is that tubular billet, pipe bend and anticorrosive coating specifications offered by China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Corporation (CPPE) and UzLITIneftegaz research institute are completely different from the Russian standards.
Uzbekistan-China gas pipeline is one leg of Central Asia-China gas main built for exporting Uzbek gas to the People's Republic of China. SOT is the only Russian manufacturer to have passed prequalification (attestation) as a supplier of pipe bends for the third leg of Uzbekistan-China gas pipeline project.
Rimera Group companies and Asia Trans Gas joint venture have several years of successful cooperation history. Back in 2009 SOT supplied hot-formed bends for the first and second legs of Uzbekistan-China gas pipeline project. This August the join venture purchased a parcel of ball valves worth USD 4,8m from Rimera's Czech-based MSA .
