Nippon Steel supplies seamless OCTG for CCS project

Nippon Steel Corporation (Nippon Steel), in a joint endeavor with Sumitomo Corporation, has received orders for high-alloy seamless OCTG that it manufactures for a CCS project intended for a project to construct blue ammonia manufacturing plant (common name: Ammonia 7) that QatarEnergy (Head Office: State of Qatar), an Energy company operated by the State of Qatar, will lead in Qatar’s Mesaieed Region. Nippon Steel recently conducted the shipment of the first articles in those orders. In this project, “NSCarbolex™ Neutral,” a form of green steel applying the mass balance approach (“green steel”) offered by Nippon Steel, will be employed.

This project constitutes the first receipt of orders for high-alloy seamless OCTG and NSCarbolex™ Neutral, for a large-scale CCS project in the Middle Eastern region.

Qatar boasts significant natural gas reserves and, in terms of LNG export volume, produces roughly one-third of all of the world’s natural gas. The state is also engaging in ammonia manufacturing and CCS projects for decarbonization purposes while supplying natural gas as a form of transition energy. In the blue ammonia manufacturing plant construction project being implemented by Qatar Energy, CO2 will be separated from methane gas emitted from the Mesaieed Region, one of Qatar’s leading industrial zones, and stored underground, after which it will be used to produce ammonia. The plant will be one of the world’s largest ammonia manufacturing plants with an annual production capacity of 1.2 million tons.
