Tata Steel has announced it has increased its links in the Middle East through the formation of a partnership with International Development Company (IDC) in the region.
IDC was established in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1978 in order to supply equipment to the oil, gas, power and petrochemical industries for private industrial projects. Tata Steel selected IDC based on its 37 years of experience and history. IDC will support and assist Tata Steel in obtaining national oil company approvals, which are required in the region.
Richard Broughton, Commercial Manager, Energy and Power, Tata Steel, commented: “Tata Steel, along with IDC, will introduce its supply capabilities to oil and gas companies in the region, providing them with an opportunity to work with a supplier who has an excellent track record of providing for offshore and onshore line pipe projects worldwide.”
Broughton continued: “It is well known that this is a challenging time for the European steel industry, but there is no effect on Tata Steel’s ability to provide high quality pipes to our customers in the energy sector. Our investments over the last year are testament to our commitment to the industry and we will continue to assist customers by reducing the total cost of project ownership without comprising on quality.”
Tata Steel is exhibiting at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference from 9 – 12 November, stand 2310.
