OCTG pricing is driven by two industry cycles- the demand for OCTG as determined by the oil and gas market and the supply of OCTG as determined by the steel market. The OCTG Market Review & Outlook analyzes both of these markets to report on the status and outlook for supply, demand and pricing of OCTG.
This bi-monthly report is a complete documentation and analysis of the metrics of OCTG, investigating different areas of the OCTG industry over the year. A year-long subscription to the Market Review & Outlook includes 6 regularly published issues.
In addition to the OCTG Market Review & Outlook Report, the following reports are also included with your annual subscription:
›› OCTG Spot Market Price Report (PDF format)
›› Data file of OCTG Spot Prices (Excel format)
