EVRAZ to Invest $200 Million in Regina

EVRAZ North America will make its largest single investment, approximately $200 million, at its Regina, Saskatchewan, facility. “This investment will secure our position as the highest quality, lowest cost integrated producer of large diameter pipe in North America," claims Conrad Winkler, EVRAZ North America president and CEO.

The investment will include the installation of a new, two-step large-diameter pipe mill, primarily through assets purchased from United Spiral Pipe, LLC. The new mill will allow for the production of larger, thicker-wall pipe and increase annual production capacity by more than 100,000 tons.

EVRAZ also will make upgrades to its steelmaking capabilities, including degassing and the ability to make larger steel slab sizes. The power and size of its rolling mill will be increased to make thicker and wider steel coils.

In conjunction with the project, EVRAZ and Enbridge will partner in a joint research and development program to enhance pipeline performance. Along with industry and academic institutions, EVRAZ and Enbridge will help drive continuous improvement with the ultimate aim of optimizing industry-wide safety and reliability.

“EVRAZ has the largest pipe research and development center in North America and it has played an important role in Canadian steel advances since 1982,” Winkler said. “Now we will combine our experience with that of Enbridge to further augment the performance of large-diameter pipe.”
