Fine Tubes has received additional NORSOK approval to supply UNS S31254 seamless tubes as endorsed by Parker Hannifin and Statoil
Fine Tubes, a leading global supplier of precision tube products, can announce its additional NORSOK approval, enabling the company to supply UNS S31254 seamless tubes across a comprehensive range of tube dimensions.
Chris Burridge, Customer Quality Engineer for Fine Tubes, commented: "The approval process allowed us to take a closer look at our manufacturing activities for this particular product line and refine them to meet with the requirements of NORSOK M-650."
Fine Tubes secured this additional approval by aligning its manufacturing process with NORSOK M-650 requirements, and providing compliance through an audit undertaken by Parker Hannifin and Statoil. The new supply approval was made possible through a frame agreement with these two industry-leading companies, and adds Fine Tubes to the Statoil TR2000 approved suppliers list.
Mr Burridge continued: "Having a place on the Statoil TR2000 approved supplier list will open up new opportunities that have been unavailable to us to date and will allow us to be more competitive in a fast growing market. The experience we have gained throughout the process will prove invaluable in our future approval endeavours of other product lines, such as S32750 Super Duplex."
NORSOK M-650 is among the oil and gas industry's most demanding quality standards for manufacturing equipment, processes and testing.
