OMK Makes First Modular Equipment Sale

The Trubodetal Manufacturing Facility (AO Trubodetal, Chelyabinsk, a United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) Subsidiary) has completed its first sale and delivery of modular equipment to the oil and gas sector. The facility has manufactured and delivered a metering unit for anti-bacterial agents/hydrogen sulfide neutralizer to the Danilovskoye Oil and Gas Condensate Field that is being produced by the Irkutsk Oil Company.

The equipment that has been accepted by the customer provides metered delivery of reagents that neutralize hydrogen sulfide and scrub oil of undesirable admixtures that cause metals to corrode. The module uses 376 separate components, all manufactured by the Trubodetal modular equipment workshop. The assembly itself had been developed at the Facility’s process and product engineering center in Ufa.

"Eastern Siberia is a complicated but promising region with difficult-to-recover hydrocarbon reserves that require pre-treatment. Success in this project confirmed Trubodetal’s abilities in making modular equipment. The facility is ready to offer new field construction solutions”, said AO Trubodetal Managing Director Dmitri Markov commenting on the delivery.
