The sale of the pipe assets of the ChTPZ Group of Andrey Komarov to the Zagorsk Pipe Plant (ZTZ) has entered the final stage.
Powerful administrative support has turned the company, to which generous orders of the gas monopoly have fallen, into a reseller of large diameter pipes from other manufacturers in Russia.
Gazprom stopped buying pipes for Nord Stream-2: a year and a half after their order, they seemed expensive to the gas monopoly.
Nikolay Yegorov took a controlling stake in the Zagorsky Pipe Plant as payment for assistance in securing financing from Sberbank.
ZPP received the status of the monopoly's supplier and a new owner.
