Alamo Tube Company plans to build the country’s first tubing-specific OCTG pipe mill and finishing facility to service the growing U.S. oilfield tubing demand. Located south of San Antonio in Elmendorf, Texas, the $62.5 million plant will employ over 200 people and be capable of rolling 250,000 tons of oilfield tubing annually. The facility will contain all the equipment necessary to produce downhole tubing from 1.5-3.5 inches in all weights and grades starting with hot-rolled coil and finishing with a completed API product.
