Welspun Gujarat Stahl Rohren (WGSR) has announced fresh order booking of Rs700 crore for the supply of line pipes to the oil & gas companies. What's important is the fact that the large part of the new orders has been received from the overseas market including an order worth Rs450 crore from the USA, which is a developed and highly competitive market. 

The company has also strengthened its position in Iran with an order worth Rs200 crore. Earlier the company had bagged orders from National Iranian Gas Company ($50 million) and PetroIran Development Company (around $52 million). Other notable overseas order wins in the past couple of years are the Rs500-crore order from Indonesia (PGN) and Rs301-crore order from Algeria (Story Transgas). The large orders reflect that the company has been able to establish itself in the niche area of high-pressure oil & gas segment globally.
