On 10 June 2015, Tenaris officially inaugurated its newly constructed pipe yard which has a storage capacity of 14000 t. The service centre first opened in 2012 in the industrial seaport city, including a commercial office and machine shop within. The expansion has allowed Tenaris to develop its service model in the region and hone in on the needs of its customers, whilst also helping to reduce their total cost of ownership.
The facility offers technical assistance for offshore and onshore oil country tubular goods, alongside operational and administrative support. Its on-site machine shop’s capabilities include: threading accessories, and threading and repairing TenarisHydril premium connections used in HPHT and deepwater projects – all of which come with proprietary Dopeless® technology.
