Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant: Vysota 239 makes sales go up

OAO Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant sold 1,485,000 tons of steel pipes in 2010 against only 1,131,000 pipes a year earlier. The company’s output went up mainly due to the launch of the new Vysota 239 department that services the needs of Gazprom; the department started manufacturing goods in the second half of 2010 and produced 5,000 tons and 61,000 tons of goods in the third and fourth quarters of 2010, respectively.

The plant kept on making pipes for Russia’s key pipelines, including VSTO-2, BTS-2, and Purpe-Samotlor. The company sold 202,000 tons of large-diameter pipes to customers in the last quarter of 2010, in addition to 48,000 tons of oil country tubular goods; this was, respectively, 62% and 11% better than in the third quarter of 2010.
