"Lukoil has always been one of TMK's most valued partners," said Alexander Shiryaev, TMK CEO. “Not only do we supply our pipe to this oil and gas major, but we have also accumulated extensive experience in joint launching and application of innovative tubular products. TMK's advanced technology and research and development capabilities are designed to meet the most demanding of oil and gas companies’ expectations. We rely on this collaborative effort to provide Lukoil with premium state-of-the-art pipe tailored to specific oilfield needs, and to ensure that TMK will expand its innovative line of high-demand products.”
