U. S. Steel Standard and Line Steel Pipe Products

A legacy of high-quality energy-specific standard and line steel tubular products developed, tested, and produced in the United States.

Because U. S. Steel has been in the business for over a century, we’ve developed a wide network of mills and manufacturing methods. Our customers have access to a broad spectrum of specialized standard and line steel tubular products to meet their particular application needs. U. S. Steel’s commitment to manufacturing the finest quality steel tubular products is even stronger today than it was when we went into business over one hundred years ago.

We are the largest, fully integrated energy tubular producer in North America. U. S. Steel has full control over every step of the pipe manufacturing process, from melt to final product. We manufacture our tubular products at several U.S.-based facilities that produce high-quality tubular products with low-residuals in a wide range of strength levels with superior toughness.

We maintain our legacy of cutting edge product development, applying the latest in technology advances to manage every aspect of our production. Precise regulation of every step of every one of our processes is essential, from charging furnaces with raw ingredients, through iron making, steelmaking, casting and rolling, to the manufacturing of tubes to exact dimensions, heat treating as required, and testing and inspecting to meet specified product requirements.

The U. S. Steel standard and line pipe offerings are widely used throughout the energy sector, both upstream and downstream. We offer both seamless and high frequency electric welded pipe to meet our customer’s specific requirements for applications in exploration and production activities, pipelines, construction, refining, and chemical and petrochemical facilities.
