Vallourec USA Corp., a subsidiary of Vallourec SA, has followed
other domestic producers in raising prices for oil country
tubular goods (OCTG), carbon and alloy tubing and casing by
$100 per ton effective with new orders, the company said in a
Sept. 9 letter to customers.
The hike reportedly was led by Pittsburgh-based U.S. Steel
Corp. in late August (
amm.com, Sept. 6).
