NEW YORK — Tenaris SA plans to fire up two new U- and O-forming presses representing a $180-million investment at its mill in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil, next week, the company said May 22.

"The investment comes in response to the oil and gas industry, which is demanding products with ever more rigorous technical specifications," Renato Catallini, Tenaris’ area manager for Brazil, said. "The new presses will manufacture tubes with greater wall thicknesses in more sophisticated steel grades, capable of performing in hostile deepwater projects, such as high-pressure, sour or highly corrosive environments."

The new presses will allow the Luxembourg-based company to manufacture tubes with wall thicknesses up to 1½ inches and diameters between 12¾ inches and 48 inches.
