By Exhibitions

The optimism is back! See you at OTD 2019 october 16-17th. Reduced cost levels and an oil price hovering between 70-80 dollar have resulted in a rush of development plans and increased exploration on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate estimates annual investments increasing to NOK 140Bn in 2019 and 2020. With 20 ongoing projects the suppliers industry see increasing demands from old and new NCS operators, often with different demands and specifications than before. This is the background for The 21.th Offshore Technology Days in Stavanger October 16-17th 2019.

Offshore Technology Days (OTD) is Norway´s leading annual oil and energy event. OTD is the meeting place where professionals from the oil and energy business meet and share technical and commercial experience.

Sverdrup Steel team in Korea

Sverdrup K-Steel has become a hit on the scale of K-Pop

By News

Since we established Sverdrup Steel Late November 2017. Had our first customer delivery from the Korean stock in March 2018. Our Sverdrup Steel K-Team has not looked back. The frantic pace of the early days of the startup has just continued. Already this year Sverdrup Steel has invoiced more in 2019 than what we did  throughout 2018.

When setting up Sverdrup Steel Korea we promised to deliver a wide stock range with high volumes for our range of alloys. To uphold the level of service, quality, reliability and delivery performance that our customers has come to expect from the Sverdrup Steel group.

The reception of customers and turnover generated in such a short time really speaks for itself and is a testimony to Min-Young and his team. It is the proof that they have succeeded.

The 2500m2 stock is bursting at the seams with material. Even with a high turnover ratio.

We are very happy to be able to conclude given the results in hand with the following; that the very optimistic strategy and goals we set for Korea is being met.

In addition to the plate stock, we have added a coil stock. This means that we are now able to deliver cut to length plates enabling us to provide the same service in South East Asia. As we do for our European customers from Burg.

Off course with the kind of growth, Sverdrup Steel Korea is achieving. Our Korean branch now have more employees than what was the case when we last gave you an update in April 2018. At that time, the team consisted of three members. Today Min-Young is managing a squad of eight, as presented in the featured picture of this article.
