Interview of Engineer Arsalan Ahmadi in the comprehensive book of oil transfer pipelines from Gore to Jask
Explain the role of Oris Oxin in this huge national project and the type of contract with the project employer.
Oris Oxin Company is a commercial engineering company and supply of goods for the oil and gas industry, and due to the relationship and cooperation we had with Ahwaz Pipe Company, we participate in many steel pipe supply projects as its representative. In fact, the role of Oris Oxin Company was to create a solution to increase the domestic production capacity of sour pipeline sheets and NACE sheets for the first time in Iran. The cooperation of Oris Auxin Company with Mobarakeh Steel of Isfahan and Khuzestan Auxin Steel Company has been in the form of creating conditions for multilateral cooperation through project management as well as financing the project and providing contractual guarantees. Oris Oxin Company has also been in charge of supplying pipes for transmission lines from 6-inch to 24-inch by ERW and 24 to 56-inch by LSAW through concluding cooperation agreements with pipe-making companies such as Ahvaz Pipe Manufacturing Company and Mahshahr Pipe Manufacturing Company.
What are the specific features and dimensions of the project compared to the previous oris oxin projects?
One of the features of this project is its high production speed and tonnage. Due to the strategic conditions of the Gore to Jask national project, we needed a daily production cycle of slab production, sheet production, pipe production and pipe delivery to the project, which we were able to achieve by creating suitable conditions for cooperation between all suppliers and manufacturers.
Performance of project elements in employer sectors, How do you evaluate the consultants, inspectors, etc. in Gore Jask project?
Basically, this project was done with a very good cooperation between the employer, consultant, contractors and suppliers, which would not have been possible without this empathy between the organs, and the project could not have progressed on this scale. Positive attitude and proper cooperation and cooperation of the project employer with domestic companies played a significant role in the success of this national project. In this project, technically, we never saw ourselves alone, and the employer was always with us technically. For example, in the field of slab production, the employer always gave us very valuable advice and capable engineers in this project from the National Iranian Oil Company helped Mobarakeh Steel of Isfahan and Auxin Steel. Iran Petroleum Engineering and Development Company, as an employer, has always had a view of technical support and cooperation with us, and this made it possible for us to do this in the best way with this view and relying on the ability to build domestically and use local experts.
What do you think was the most valuable experience gained for Oris Oxin in this project?
For the first time in Iran, in cooperation with Mobarakeh Steel Company of Isfahan and Auxin Steel Company of Khuzestan, we established a partnership, as a result of which we were able to supply sour slabs and turn them into sheets, eliminating the need for the country to import them. This valuable cooperation, while promoting the country's industry, especially the steel industry, had a very important impact on preventing the outflow of currency from the country, which increased the added value of this national plan.
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced in the Gore Jask project, both technically, financially, organizationally ...?
Khuzestan Auxin Steel Company was producing construction sheets before the Goreh to Jask project, and the support of the Ministry of Oil for Auxin Steel Company and Mobarakeh Steel Company of Isfahan caused us to achieve this progress in achieving sour sheet production technology. The sheets required by the oil industry are divided into two groups: sour and sweet API sheets, and before this design, API sheets
We produced sweet in a very limited way in Khuzestan Auxin Steel, the maximum of which was ten thousand tons per month. But as a result of this belief and trust that was created by the Ministry of Petroleum to domestic companies, we were able to achieve this growth in the country's steel industry.
How much has this project contributed to the entrepreneurship and growth of OrisOxin?
Creating the ground for cooperation with scientific and university centers to localize the knowledge of sour sheet production, which led to further cooperation through concluding a memorandum of understanding and consulting agreement with Sharif University of Technology and Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz to localize knowledge of equipment required by the oil industry.
What records have been broken in your collection during this project?
Production of sour sheets and sour service pipes for the first time in Iran, which is the most important record for our country. The highest amount of slab production in a month, the highest amount of slab transportation from Mobarakeh steel to auxin steel and the highest amount of sheet production in a month of 45,000 tons.
What is the best experience that OrisOxin has gained during this project for future projects?
Experience in financial management of large industrial projects through establishing effective communication between domestic suppliers and producers and the country's banking system, which has become the background for multilateral cooperation in oil and gas projects. Playing a small role in the development of Iran, names by believing in the possibility of using domestic production capacity and creating jobs in the deprived province of Khuzestan.
