Nippon Steel Corporation ("Nippon Steel") will participate in ADIPEC (Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference), an international oil and gas exhibition to be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE on November 15-18, 2021. Nippon Steel has been exhibiting at ADIPEC since 2015, and this will be the sixth time in two years since last year's exhibition was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ADIPEC is one of the world's largest international oil and gas events that brings over 2,000 exhibiting companies and welcomes about 100,000 attendees each year. It brings together engineering companies, manufacturers, oil majors, and other companies not only from the Middle East but also from all over the world.
At this year's exhibitions, we will feature high-performance products such as high-end OCTG that can be used in environments with high concentrations of CO2, such as CCS*1, which is expected to be a major step toward achieving carbon neutrality; HYDREXELTM (HRX19®), a stainless steel product for handling high-pressure hydrogen with advanced resistance to hydrogen corrosion, which is required for commercial hydrogen stations for the hydrogen economy; and HTUFFTM, a thick steel plate with enhanced HAZ toughness*2, which is used for offshore wind power generation equipment mounts. As the need for solutions for climate change increases worldwide, we will introduce our customers to energy-related products that are expected to serve as solutions for promoting decarbonization.
Taking advantage of this exhibition event, Nippon Steel will broadly contribute to achieving a green society in the areas of technological development and product offerings by responding to the needs for decarbonization of energy companies in the Middle East and other parts of the world, with aiming for the goals of Nippon Steel's "Challenge of Zero-Carbon Steel."
The Nippon Steel Group will continue to pursue the world's best technology and manufacturing capabilities, and contribute to improving society through activities that conform to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations, with a focus on “Affordable and Clean Energy” and “Climate Action.”
*1: What is CCS (carbon dioxide capture and storage)?
A technology to capture and store carbon dioxide, in which CO2 emitted from power plants and chemical plants is separated from other gases, collected, and stored deep underground.
*2: What is HAZ toughness?
The toughness of parts where the metallographic structure changes due to thermal effects during welding.
