Pipeline industry: Thriving now, but at the cost of the oil & gas industry
Oct 30: Cheap Chinese imports had taken the bottom out of the Indian line pipe industry until the government decided to impose sttep anti-dumping duties ranging from $961-1611 per tonne.
8Then again, a value added clause was added to tenders finalized by oil and gas companies.
8A combination of these factors has had two distinct impacts:
-- The cost of pipelines have gone up steeply in India as a handful of suppliers begun forging cartels to keep prices up.
-- The fortunes of domestic steel companies, buoyed by protectionism, have shown a sharp upsurge.
8Clearly, the relationship between higher profitability and protectionism has not been established beyond doubt
8At the receiving end, of course, is the oil and gas industry.
