The United Metallurgical Company's Chelyabinsk facility (OMK Trubodetal) has re-certified its quality management system (QMS) for compliance with the GOST R ISO 9001-2015 International Standard through August 2024.

Excellent QMS performance based on the outcomes of the re-certification audit provided additional evidence that OMK Trubodetal is a client-oriented facility capable of manufacturing high-quality product for oil and gas installations. The management system of OMK’s Chelyabinsk facility applies to the development, the fabrication, and the delivery of fittings and assemblies for trunk and in-field pipelines ranging in dimension from 57 to 1,420 mm and designed for pressures of up to 32 MPa.

Experts from the Pronap Certification Authority noted the facility personnel’s high level of skill, experience, and authority, which enables them to maintain high quality while making any pipeline fittings, including pipeline fittings to unique specifications. They also noted that the facility’s internal audit system enables management to implement continuous improvements to the facility’s quality system.

“Companies in the energy sector levy stringent requirements on the quality of products for oil and gas installations. OMK’s Chelyabinsk facility is one of the country’s largest manufacturers of pipeline fittings and currently offers the widest range of products for the oil and gas industry. We manufacture items for operation in the Extreme North that are resistant to aggressive hydrogen sulfide media and high internal pressure in the line with OD and ID coatings as well as exterior thermal insulation. We have international project experience and a history of delivering products in imperial sizes. The issuance of an international certificate provided evidence that OMK Trubodetal’s production processes are highly structured and that we have capabilities for delivering high-quality product to the oil and gas sector,” said Trubodetal Managing Director Alexander Vashchenko when speaking about the outcomes of the audit.


The compliance certificate was issued in August 2021. The document is evidence of compliance of the facility's quality management system with the requirements of GOST R ISO 9001-2015 as it applies to the development and the manufacture of fittings and assemblies of trunk and in-field pipelines with pressures of up to 32 MPa, bends, curved inserts for curves in straight trunk pipelines, seamless welded pipeline components from carbon and low-alloyed steels. Pipeline fittings with diameters of between 219 and 1,420 mm with an exterior corrosion coating, with diameters of between 57 and 630 mm with an interior corrosion coating, pipeline fittings from high-alloyed steels as well as fittings with an exterior thermal coating and with diameters of between 57 and 1,420 mm. The certificate is valid through August 15, 2024.
