Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant and Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (ChTPZ Group’s largest tube and pipe manufacturers) supplied their consumers with 1,758,000 tons of tubular goods in January-November 2007, which is 11% better than in January-November 2006 when the figure only came to 1,577,000 tons.

ChTPZ Group sold 973,800 tons of tubes and pipes in the eleven months of the year, which exceeds the figures for a year earlier (that is, 877,200 tons) by 11%. These figures include an 18% increase in the amount of large-diameter pipes: it came to 546,300 tons compared with only 463,600 tons of LDPs in January-November 2006.

Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant delivered 85,300 tons of tubular goods to consumers in November 2007 (which is 3% better than the 82,900 tons delivered a year earlier), including 54,300 tons of LDPs, which exceeds the figures for last November (44,000 tons) by 23%.

Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant delivered 48,616 tons of tubular goods to consumers in November 2007, which falls short of the amount delivered a year earlier (69,400 tons) by 30%. This had to do with a major overhaul given to mill 220 meant for production of weldless hot-rolled pipes. The shipments also went down because of increasing import of stainless and bearing pipes from China. Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant has shipped 784,600 tons of goods to consumers since the beginning of the year, which is 12 % better than the 700,100 tons delivered in January-November 2006, the spokesperson for the company says.
