Canada - Steelmaking and rolling
EVRAZ Regina in Saskatchewan is the largest steelmaking operation in Western Canada. It comprises two electric arc furnaces (EAFs), a ladle furnace, a continuous variable-width slab caster, as well as a Steckel mill capable of rolling coil and plate with a width of up to 72 inches. EVRAZ Regina Steel produces carbon steel slabs, flat-rolled discrete plate and coiled plate. EVRAZ Regina’s tubular operations are comprised of a 24-inch ERW line pipe mill, a 2-inch ERW pipe mill (OCTG tubing welding), five Helical Submerged Arc-Welded (HSAW) mills, and ID/OD coating facility, producing large-diameter pipe for oil, natural gas, and LNG transmission. EVRAZ Regina’s tubular mills are important suppliers to the North American energy markets, serving leading energy producers and midstream operators in both Canada and the US.
EVRAZ Calgary comprises an Electric Resistance Welded (ERW) pipe mill as well as heat treat, API threading, and finishing lines for OCTG casing with an outside diameter of up to 9 5/8 inches. The site also operates ERW tubing finishing facilities comprising pipe upsetting, threading, testing and inspection. EVRAZ Calgary’s products are primarily used in the exploration and production of oil and gas in Canada and the US.
EVRAZ Camrose operates an ERW pipe mill and finishing line, capable of producing small-diameter line pipe and carbon OCTG casing with an outside diameter of up to 16 inches. Camrose products are primarily used in the drilling, transmission and distribution of oil and natural gas as well as in the transmission of other substances such as carbon dioxide.
EVRAZ Edmonton Coupling Machining

EVRAZ Red Deer
EVRAZ Red Deer comprises an ERW pipe mill producing OCTG casing and small-diameter line pipe with an outside diameter of up to 13 3/8 inches. The site includes a casing heat treat line, API and premium threading lines, as well as separate OCTG casing and SDP finishing lines.
US - Steelmaking and rolling
EVRAZ Portland in Oregon comprises a Steckel rolling mill, a plate quench and tempering facility, and two HSAW pipe mills. The Portland rolling mill is the only plate mill on the West Coast and has deep-water access to the Pacific Ocean as well as access to Class I railways and trucking routes serving North America. Finished products include hot-rolled carbon and alloy steel plate, hot-rolled coil, heat-treated plate, shot-blasted and primed plate, temper-passed cut-to-length plate and plate coil. The Portland HSAW mills produce large-diameter API grade pipe for oil and gas transmission and structural applications.
EVRAZ Pueblo in Colorado comprises three rolling mills: a rail mill; a seamless pipe mill that produces OCTG products for use in oil and gas exploration; and a wire rod and coiled reinforcing bar mill. EVRAZ also operates one EAF and a billet caster that supplies round billets to the hot rolling mills. In addition, EVRAZ Pueblo owns and operates the Colorado and Wyoming railway, a short-line route that serves the Group’s mills and connects the site to both the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and the Union Pacific railway lines, which results in minimal delivery costs to these customers.
In June 2020, the EVRAZ board of directors approved execution of a capital project to construct a universal long rail mill at the Pueblo site. This project will modernise Pueblo’s rail making capability and enable the manufacture and welding of 100m rails.
