TUBACEX is going to supply tubular solutions to one of THE WORLD'S LARGEST refineries

TUBACEX has signed a framework agreement with Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Refinery Co. Ltd for the supply of tubes in austenitic steels and high nickel alloys for what will be one of the world's largest refineries, which plans to start production in October 2018, with a total volume of 20 Million metric tons per year.

The importance of this framework agreement lies in the fact that end-users tend to be interested in purchasing full service solutions directly from TUBACEX Group.

Quality is always a priority for the Hengli group, so Hengli Refinery Project will probably make use of the best and most difficult refinery processes, that is, the full hydro-treatment. In this situation, Hengli would like to buy high quality materials, that TUBACEX Group is able to supply are the biggest seamless stainless steel producer in the world. From the first contact to the final framework contract awarded, it took TUBACEX China team over two years’ hard work to close all the technical and supply details of the order, facing challenging specifications: high grades, tight tolerances, extremely stringent grain size.

After a long thorough negotiation, Hengli placed this important order with TUBACEX Group. Hengli group Vice-President - Mr. Chen - has expressed his confidence that the high quality TUBACEX group can provide will result in the best possible raw material for the Hengli refinery project.
