Tata Steel, a Tata Group enterprise, has signed a multi-million dollar contract with Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) for the manufacture and supply of 110 km of line pipe and coatings for the Kirkuk to Baiji dry gas project in Iraq.

The line pipe, weighing c.10,000 tonnes, has a diameter of 16 inches and is specifically designed for the transportation of dry gas.

Carol Hughes, business development manager, Energy and Power for Tata Steel said: “The contract with KOGAS is our largest ever in Iraq and indicates the current opportunities that are in the marketplace. Large scale oil and gas projects, particularly brown field, are beginning to receive significant investment in the country and our large presence in the region means we are well placed to capitalise on the increased activity.”

Tata Steel has been operating in the Middle East region for the past 20 years. The company has witnessed strong growth and is taking part in several large scale projects across the region.

Hughes added: “The Middle East offers many opportunities for Tata Steel and our customers.  Recent growth and investment in the region has made it an attractive place to develop and do business, with many of our customers starting to increase activity in the region. As an organisation we have a global footprint and service companies which operate on an international scale. The Middle East is a growth area for Tata Steel.”
