Alamo Tube Co. has announced plans to build what it says is the country’s first tubing-specific OCTG pipe mill and finishing facility in Elmendorf, Texas, targeted to service growing demand for U.S. oilfield tubing.
The plant will produce downhole tubing from 1.5 to 3.5 in. in all weights and grades, starting with hot-rolled coil and finishing with a completed API product. The $62.5 million facility will employ more than 200 people and be capable of rolling 250,000 tons of oilfield tubing annually.
