EVRAZ North America to Begin Heat-Treat Expansion
EVRAZ North America announced plans to expand heat-treat and threading capacity at its Calgary, Alberta, tubular facility. The multimillion dollar project includes expanding heat-treat capacity by over 150% and threading capacity by about 40%. Work is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2014. According to the company, the Calgary expansions will allow it to offer a more comprehensive product portfolio for premium OCTG products. EVRAZ tubular facilities manufacture a wide range of oil country tubular goods, including carbon and alloy products, premium connections, and small- and large-diameter line pipe. In addition to Red Deer and Calgary, EVRAZ operates pipe-making facilities in Regina, Saskatchewan; Camrose, Alberta; Portland, Ore.; and Pueblo, Colo.
