Gazprom and ChelPipe have signed an agreement for the development and batch production of pipes for offshore projects.
At the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi, Gazprom Management Committee Deputy Chairman Vitaly Markelov and ChelPipe Chairman of the Board of Directors Andrey Komarov signed an agreement for the collaborative development.
According to the document, ChelPipe will adopt technology to produce pipes from 25Cr super duplex steel and UNS N06625 nickel alloy.
Equipment made of these materials possess high strength and corrosion resistance when used in offshore environments; there are currently no pipes of this kind produced in Russia.
ChelPipe will deliver, test and certify prototypes under Gazprom’s requirements over the course of 2018, with the pipes to be used in the manufacture of domestic equipment for subsea production systems, including manifolds and subsea trees.
