Representatives from Samsung Engineering visited Tenaris’s Tamsa seamless mill in Veracruz in Mexico as part of an agreement for the supply of coated tubes for the second phase of the Dos Bocas Refinery in Mexico’s largest hydrocarbon processing project. During the visit representatives from Samsung Engineering learned about the industrial capabilities of the Tamsa mill, where pipes and accessories for the Dos Bocas Refinery will be manufactured. Extensive documentation, as well as color coded striping and special packaging, are required by the customer, adding challenges throughout the manufacturing and delivery process.
The agreement with Samsung includes the provision of pipes and accessories from Tenaris’s mills in Mexico, Italy, Argentina and Romania. It also enables the company to continue supplying products for the next phases of the Dos Bocas Refinery project.
The Dos Bocas Refinery is a project which is being developed by Pemex Transformación Industrial, the downstream arm of Pemex. Expected to be completed in 2023, the refinery will consist of 17 operating process plants, a power and auxiliary services unit, cooling towers and a section of water treatment plants with a capacity of around 340,000 barrels of crude per day.
