The 12th edition of the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) was held on January 13-15, 2020, in Dammam, one of Saudi Arabia's oil hubs. With the expansion of our footprint in the Middle East, this was a perfect opportunity to highlight TenarisSaudiSteelPipes, our first pipe manufacturing facility in the region.
The booth featured a full lineup of our products, with special focus on welded OCTG and line pipe. We also promoted our service capabilities as part of the strategy to combine global expertise with strong local presence to better serve our customers. “Our participation in this conference helps us stay aligned with the priorities of the Kingdom, and our main customer, Saudi Aramco. Tenaris, through its technologies, service model and commitment to sustainability, can help our customers in improving efficiencies, and minimizing cost and environmental impact,” said Mariano Armengol, CEO and Managing Director of TenarisSSP.
Our commitment to a sustainable industrial presence in Saudi Arabia echoed the main theme of the conference “Vision to Prosperity: A New Energy Era.” As the oil and gas industry confronts the challenge of reducing its impact on the environment and local communities, we put sustainable development and commitment to minimizing environmental impact front and center of our operations.
IPTC 2020, with its record attendance of over 40,000 visitors and 250 exhibitors, proved to be an effective venue for spotlighting our growing presence in Saudi Arabia. In addition to TenarisSSP, we operate two premium threading facilities in Dammam.
