Nashik (Maharashtra) [India], September 18: In line with Indian Government's vision of AatmaNirbhar Bharat,
, a Joint Venture between global giants Jindal SAW Ltd. & Hunting Energy Services Ltd. proudly announces the grand opening of their facility collocated at the seamless tube facility of Jindal SAW Ltd. at Nashik, Maharashtra, today.
The newly launched facility which is envisioned as a 'Center of Excellence' stands as the inaugural and presently sole facility capable of producing and supplying pipes, tubes, and premium connections to the OCTG market within the Indian oil & gas sector. Thus far, all these products had to be imported from other countries, putting a strain on the foreign exchange situation in India.

Jim Johnson, CEO, Hunting PLC said, "This is a fantastic milestone, firstly with our strategic partnership with Jindal SAW Ltd back in August 2019 to the realization of the vision developed over the past four years, great progress has been made. Today, both Jindal SAW and Hunting make history, with the opening of the JV's full-fledged premium OCTG, accessories and manufacturing operations, in support of the Government's 'Make in India' initiative."
The facility is set to achieve an annual threading capacity of 70,000 metric tons of OCTG. It will be fully supported by a seamless supply chain, drawing raw materials and inputs from the Jindal SAW across the country.
