16:331398/5/23Iran Saves €200m by Domestic Manufacturing of Sour Sheet MetalsTEHRAN (NIOC) _ Production of 42-inch sheet metals for the Goreh-Jask Pipeline saves Iran 200 million dollars annually.
Amin Ebrahimi, the CEO of Oxin Steel Company, told reporters on Wednesday that his company operated with a production capacity of 1.05 million tons/year of wide sheet metal.
He said his company, supported by the NIOC and the Iranian Ministry of Petroleum, had acquired the savvy to domestically produce sour sheet metals.
The company is the only producer of wide sheet metal in Iran and was built in 2009.
Ebrahimi said that 15,000 tons of sheet metal would be required for building the Goreh-Jask pipeline project.
The Petroleum Engineering and Development Company (PEDEC) is building a crude oil pipeline which will transfer oil from Goreh to Jask oil export terminal. The company is seriously concerned about maximizing its reliance on domestic producers and manufacturers for developing the project.
