Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant and Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant deliver 1.5 million tons of tubes and pipes in 2008

Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant and Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant (ChTPZ Group’s largest tube and pipe manufacturers) supplied their consumers with 1.509 million tons of tubular goods in the twelve months of 2008, which falls short of the figures for a year earlier (that is, 1.892 million tons) by 20%. The decrease in the output volume mainly has to do with smaller demand for large-diameter pipes in the industrial, machine-building, construction, and energy sectors in the last quarter of 2008. The decrease in demand was, in its turn, brought about by the rapidly unfolding financial and economic crises. Besides, the primary construction stages of some major pipeline projects have also been completed, so the demand for LDPs dropped there as well.


Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant sold 806,700 tons of tubes and pipes last year, which falls short of the figures for a year earlier (that is, 1.049 million tons) by 23%. These figures include a 33% drop in the amount of large-diameter pipes: this came to 398,000 tons compared with 593,400 tons of LDPs in 2007.


Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant delivered 35,500 tons of tubular goods to consumers in December 2008, including 18,800 tons of LDPs.


Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant delivered 25,500 tons of tubular goods to consumers in December 2008 and 702,200 tons in twelve months of the year, which is 17% less than the 842,700 tons delivered in 2007.
