Interpipe mastered the production of pup joints for oil and gas industry

In 2016 Interpipe expanded the range of its products for the oil and gas industry and mastered the manufacturing of a new product – pup joints.
This product is used for selection of a precise length of casing and tubing strings, when such selection cannot be ensured with installation of a standard length pipe. Today Interpipe produces pup joints with the diameter range from 60.3 to 339.7 mm and lengths from 0.6 to 5 meters with all types of threads in full accordance with requirements of the international API standard.
The company has already carried out the first supplies of the new product. Interpipe pup joints have been delivered for Turkish and Ukrainian oil and gas field developments. In particular, in Ukraine they will be used for the natural gas production in the Poltava region.

Denis Morozov, CFO, Interpipe:
“Pup joints are in quite high demand both at home and in export markets. For instance, this position is included into all large-scale tenders for OCTG pipe deliveries to the Middle East and African markets. Their production is an additional service for our customers.”
The company intends to supply pup joints to the Ukrainian market and to customers from NAFTA, CIS, Middle East, and Africa.

Interpipe is global producer of steel pipes and railway wheels, based in Ukraine. The company’s products are marketed in more than 80 countries around the world through a network of sales offices located in key markets of Ukraine, the CIS, the Middle East, North America, and Europe. In 2015 Interpipe supplied 600,000 tons of pipe and wheel products. The company’s workforce makes up 11,500 employees.
