SST Group has completed the vendor listing procedure and has been listed as a verified supplier by major global EPC contractors in the oil and gas, oil refining, and extractive industries and civil engineering.
In 2020, the company was endorsed by Engineers India Limited, a state-owned enterprise reporting to the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas of India and a provider of turnkey design and project support services around the world for over 50 years. It took SST Group 1.5 years to obtain the endorsement. The procedure included a thorough check on multiple criteria. Its successful completion was an important milestone for the company.
Another major achievement in 2020 for our company was securing endorsement by McDermott, one of the largest international EPC contractors. Listing as a vendor allowed SST Group to take part in — and eventually win — a tender for the supply of heating cables for a delayed coking unit at the LUKOIL-Nizhegorodnefteorgsintez oil refinery (Kstovo, Russia).
SST Group is also listed by the international EPC contractors Linde, Total, Petrofac and WorleyParsons as a trusted vendor of heating systems based on electric heating cables. In 2020, positive listing decisions were also made by ENKA, Eurasian Resources Group (ERG), Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V., North Caspian Operating Company N.V. (NCOC), Samruk-Kazyna Construction, Tengizchevroil, PETROJET, Petroleum Authority of Uganda, and others.
Vendor listing is a procedure for short-listing potential suppliers to leading international EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractors and operators acting as prime contractors in turnkey projects. To become listed, a contractor is required to disclose certain information about its operations and undergo an audit, thus proving the high quality of its products or services.
