He added: "Vallourec has research and development centers, and they have more than 500 researchers in the development of technology and products.



Al-Rabiah pointed out that there is coordination between the ministries of labor and commerce regarding the facilitation of visas.

He added: "The annual production capacity of this plant is set to reach more than 100,000 tons, however, the company will provide the latest technology in the manufacturing of gears and pipes in order to produce more than 100,000 tons
