The Saudi-German joint venture EEW Global Pipe Company was founded in the year 2011 by the Erndtebrücker Eisenwerk GmbH & Co. KG and its Saudi Arabian partner, Saudi Steel Pipe Co. (SSP), Mr Ahmed Al Khonaini and Pan Gulf Holding (PGH). EEW GPC is specialised in the manufacturing of line pipe products for the oil, gas, petrochemical, energy production and construction industries and the associated markets. Our plant in Saudi Arabia is located in Jubail Industrial City. It is equipped with the most advanced production facility, including a full-length pipe expander, and produces more than 200,000 tonnes of steel pipes annually.
EEW GPC is the first steel pipe producer in the Middle East that can manufacture line pipes with outside diameters of up to 1,574 mm (62”) and wall thicknesses up to 50.8 mm (2”). No other steel pipe manufacturer in this region is in the position to offer such a complete product portfolio of LSAW pipes for the oil and gas industries.
In our in-house materials testing laboratory, the mechanical-technological properties of the welds can be examined and the results of the examination can be documented. This includes tests to determine the yield strength, tensile yield strength, impact toughness and hardness. Bending tests and spectrographical analyses can also be carried out here.
EEW GPC is a reliable partner for the realisation of complex line pipe projects and is certified in accordance with the internationally recognised norms ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management) and OHSAS 18001 (work safety management). In addition, EEW GPC has the APL 5L and 2B product certifications as well as customer approval through Saudi Aramco.
With more than 2,100 employees and nine production facilities throughout the entire world, the EEW Group is the world’s leading specialist for the production of submerged-arc welded pipes.
We move in complex markets where one aspect is more important than all of the others: the development of custom solutions for unique projects. For that, you need abilities and know-how. For that, you need experience. But most importantly, you need employees who make every effort to achieve the best results. Motivated people who gladly meet new challenges are always welcome to become a part of the EEW family. Together we develop new dimensions.
