-We recently received news that you exported pipes to the U.S. Could you give us information about the ton amount and value of your exports to the U.S.?
"The pipes exported to America were manufactured at the Pipe Rolling Shop of Baku Steel Company. Pipe Rolling Shop has an annual production capacity of 60-65 thousand tons. About 5000 tons of seamless pipes planned to be exported to America. The total shipment will be realized within a delivery period of 4-6 months. Although this timeframe is considered a long time for products such as rebar, this delivery time is quite good for pipe delivery.
Among the countries we export to are regular buyers in Italy, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Russia. Our shipments to America have just started. We do not know whether this will continue on a regular basis. However, we aim to increase our pipe production capacity. We may take different steps accordingly in the future."
