CRC Evans

Mikhail Blekherov representing CRC Evans explains the role of the welding contractor.

Significant long distance infrastructure projects, to expand the world’s oil and gas distribution network, have been steadily emerging across the continents.

These combined changes reflect the need to quickly transport increasing volumes of hydrocarbons at higher pressures.
