Fine Tubes Receives NORSOK Approval from Parker Hannifin and Statoil

NORSOK-approved seamless tubes

Leading global supplier of precision tube products Fine Tubes has announced additional NORSOK approval, enabling the company to supply UNS S31254 seamless tubes across a comprehensive range of tube dimensions.

Fine Tubes customer quality engineer Chris Burridge said: "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 the 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.
