The leading pipe producer in Ukraine is the international vertically integrated pipe and wheel company Interpipe. Before the war, Naftogaz’s subsidiaries Ukrgazvydobuvannya and Ukrnafta consumed about 50-60 thousand tons of Interpipe’s pipes.

As GMK Center reported earlier, at the beginning of the year Interpipe Niko Tube signed a contract with UGV for the supply of various types of pipes with a total cost of UAH 2.9 billion. After that, Interpipe won two more tenders for the production of pipes for a gas producing company – 1.5 thousand tons worth 161.9 million UAH and 3 thousand tons worth 201.1 million UAH.

The Ukrainian pipe enterprises in January-July 2022 reduced pipe production by 27.1% compared to the same period in 2021, to 226.9 thousand tons
