Keywords: Tags  Borusan, Baytown, OCTG, Benteler Steel, Tenaris, Texas

NEW YORK — Turkish pipe and tube maker Borusan Mannesmann will start construction on its $150-million, 300,000-ton-per-year energy tubulars mill in Baytown, Texas, on April 2.

“Borusan Mannesman, the leader of the steel pipe sector in Turkey, is about to take an important step into the North American OCTG (oil country tubular goods) market,” the company said in an invitation to its groundbreaking ceremony, which will be attended by Turkish Economy Minister Zafer Çağlayan.

Istanul-based Borusan is one of a number of foreign pipe and tube makers building mills in the United States to serve the domestic energy tubulars market, including Germany’s Benteler Steel/Tube GmbH, which is planning a $900-million seamless OCTG facility in Caddo, La. (, Oct. 26), and Luxembourg-based Tenaris SA, which recently announced a $1.5-billion, 600,000-tonne-per-year seamless OCTG facility in Bay City, Texas (, Feb. 15).
