Business Description

Industry: Oil & Gas - Services » Oil & Gas Equipment & Services
Compare: » details
WSP Holdings Limited was incorporated in the Cayman Islands in November 2006. It is a holding company, which conducts substantially all of its operations through its subsidiaries in China. The Company is a Chinese manufacturer of seamless Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG), including casing, tubing and drill pipes used for oil and natural gas exploration, drilling and extraction. It offers a range of seamless OCTG products to its customers. Its product portfolio could generally be divided into two categories: API products, which are products manufactured according to the standards formulated by the American Petroleum Institute, or API; and non-API products, which are products tailor-made to meet its customers' specifications, and that are generally manufactured to a higher standard than API products. The company's key operating assets included ten threading lines and two drill pipe production lines with an aggregate annual production capacity of approximately 1,394,000 tonnes of seamless OCTG. Its production capacity was approximately 1,430,000 tonnes. The Company plans to expand its manufacturing facilities with the establishment of a production facility in Houston, Texas and additional production facilities in China. It sells its products in both domestic and international markets. In China, it targets sales of its products mainly at Chinese oil companies. In 2008, it was the second OCTG supplier to China National Petroleum Corporation, or CNPC, and one of the two China-based non-API suppliers to China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, or Sinopec. In the international markets, it has established an extensive overseas customer base, covering oilfields in North America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Russia. The Company faces competition in the domestic and international markets in which it operates. Many of its competitors are state-owned enterprises which might have greater resources and better brand recognition than it does. The Company's subsidiaries are generally subject to laws and regulations applicable to foreign investments in China and, in particular, laws applicable to wholly foreign-owned enterprises.
