Pursuant to the sales contract, Chu Kong Pipe will supply CNPC, Sinopec and CNOOC with approximately 53,000 tonnes, 18,000 tonnes and 74,000 tonnes of oil and natural gas pipe respectively during the period from 2010 to 2011. The sales contract is worth approximately RMB834 million.
Mr. Chen Chang, Chairman of the Group, said, “The Group has teamed up with the three oil giants for years and has always been supplying quality steel pipes for their projects. Their long-term support to Chu Kong Pipe is a tribute to their recognition of the Group’s excellence in product quality, as well as a testimony of the Group’s strong reputation in the industry and leading market position.”
In addition to China’s market, the global demand for steel pipes is poised to grow rapidly. Mr. Guy Outen, Executive Vice President for exploration and production at Royal Dutch Shell Plc., pointed out earlier that the world demand for LNG will double to 4 trillion m3 by 2020. The rapidly growing demand for LNG will offer immense growth potential for steel pipe providers that meet international standards.
