TMK, MMK agree on price formula for rolled sheet

TMK signed an agreement with Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) at the METAL-EXPO 2014, an international industrial exhibition held in Moscow, for the pricing formula to be used for calculating the pricing of wide hot-rolled sheets shipped to TMK enterprises.

MMK is expected to ship wide hot-rolled sheets to TMK’s Volzhsky Pipe Plant, which would use them to produce large diameter pipes (LDP) intended for major Russian gas pipeline projects by Gazprom, including Power of Siberia, South Stream and Bovanenkovo–Ukhta. TMK and Gazprom have been applying similar formula pricing to LDP products shipped to the gas major for two years now. The key parameters of the price formula for MMK sheets were agreed in line with the LDP formula applied by TMK and Gazprom.

“The price formula agreement signed with MMK, one of our main feedstock suppliers, and a similar agreement with Gazprom, one of our major clients, gives us the opportunity to harmonise our mutual interests based on objective market criteria. We are now well-positioned to considerably optimise internal business processes as well as improve planning efficiency and pricing transparency”, said TMK CEO Alexander Shiryaev.
