EVRAZ North America to Begin Heat Treat and Threading Expansion at Calgary

EVRAZ North America announced Board approval of its plan to expand heat treat and threading capacity at its Calgary, Alberta, tubular facility. The multimillion dollar project, which will commence next month, includes expanding heat treat capacity by over 150 percent and threading capacity by about 40 percent. Work is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2014.

"The Calgary expansions will allow us to offer a more comprehensive product portfolio to meet growing needs for premium OCTG products," said Tigran Atayan, Executive Vice President–Tubular Products Group for EVRAZ North America. "This project, as well as the premium threading line expansion already underway at our Red Deer facility, demonstrates our strong commitment to customers in Western Canada."

EVRAZ tubular facilities manufacture a wide range of oil country tubular goods, including carbon and alloy products and premium connections, as well as small and large diameter line pipe, all of which meet or exceed standards set by the American Petroleum Institute (API). In addition to Red Deer and Calgary, EVRAZ operates pipe-making facilities in Regina, Saskatchewan; Camrose, Alberta; Portland, Ore.; and Pueblo, Colo.
