TMK launches production of super-chrome steel VIT

TMK, a leading global manufacturer of tubular products for the oil and gas industry, has shipped the first pilot batch of vacuum insulated tubing (VIT) made of 13CrS steel (super-chrome steel) for Gazprom’s Bovanenkovo oil and gas condensate field on the Yamal peninsula. The quantity is about 500 running meters. Super-chrome steel VIT are highly resistant to aggressive environments.

“When used in northern fields development, VIT contribute to greater energy efficiency and safety while reducing environmental impact and increasing wells’ life. The development and production of the new tubing is a good example of replacing imported products with those made domestically: previously, Russia had all these pipes supplied from abroad. Today, TMK is the only Russian company that has the technology in place to produce super-chrome steel VIT,” said Alexander Shiryaev, the company’s CEO.
