TMK Gulf International Pipe Industry (TMK GIPI) LLC, part of global pipe manufacturer TMK has completed delivery of J55 casing pipes to BP Oman.

BP Exploration (Epsilon) ordered 18-5/8”, 87.5ppf J55 BTC R3 casings from TMK GIPI earlier this year (6,100 metres) for an urgent requirement. The Plain End pipes, which were used, were produced by TMK GIPI’s Oman facility and delivered to the USA where casing pipes were threaded by TMK IPSCO and delivered to BP Oman on time.

Andrey Parkhomchuk, International Business VP at TMK, said, “TMK is a global leader in producing steel pipe and supplies oil & gas majors with best-in-class tubular products all over the world,” said Andrey Parkhomchuk, international business vice president at TMK. “BP is our respectful client and our TMK GIPI subsidiary was keen to successfully execute an important urgent order for BP in tight schedule conditions,” he added.

TMK GIPI was established in the Sultanate of Oman in January 2007. It is the first manufacturer of high pressure steel line pipes and casing pipes in the country and the first mill in the MENA region and subcontinent of India to manufacture high pressure 24in electric resistance welded (ERW) steel pipes.
