Tejas Tubular to Build Facility in Nebraska

Tejas Tubular will expand in the Midwest with the construction of a new 350,000-square-foot OCTG manufacturing facility in Norfolk, Neb. The 150,000-ton operation is expected to be complete by the third quarter of 2015.

"We're impressed with Nebraska's fiscally conservative approach to doing business," says Max Tejeda, owner of Tejas Tubular Products Inc. "I can readily see the quality and dedication of the local workforce, and am looking forward to hiring hard-working Nebraskans to manufacture our line of quality products."

Tejas Tubular is a primary supplier to oil and gas producers throughout the Rocky Mountain region. Securing additional natural gas capacity to Norfolk also was crucial to the success of this project.

Nucor Steel Bar Mill of Madison County will supply more than 150,000 tons of steel for products that include casing, drill pipe and line pipe for oil and gas production.

"I'm excited about being able to supply the highest grade of steel for Tejas Tubular's OCTG products," said Dirk Petersen, general manager of Nucor Steel Bar Mill. "This strategic partnership, as well as location to markets, is a win-win for both companies."

The project is the second expansion outside Texas for Houston-based Tejas Tubular. In September, the company announced plans to build a heat-treat facility in New Carlisle, Ind.
