Overview by business segments

Industrial pumps

The industrial pumps business segment designs, engineers, manufactures and supplies a diverse range of pumps and pump-based integrated solutions to customers in the oil and gas, power generation and water utilities sectors in Russia, the CIS and internationally. The business segment’s principal products include bare shaft pumps built to standard specifications, customized pumps and integrated solutions.

The order intake in the industrial pumps business segment grew by 64% YoY from Rub 1,643 mn to Rub 2,689 mainly as a result of orders increase in pumps for nuclear and thermal power, pumps for water utilities and pumps for oil refineries. Orders of pumps for oil upstream and midstream applications contacted, though the contraction was more than offset by the orders in the abovementioned sectors. Basically, a large number of contracts with expected revenue less than Rub 30 mn each constituted order flow of  Q1 2012.  

Oil & gas equipment

The oil and gas equipment business segment manufactures, installs and commissions modular pumping stations, automated metering equipment, oil, gas and water processing and preparation units, tanks and vessels and other equipment and systems for use primarily in oil extraction and transportation. The segment’s products are equipment packages and systems installed inside a self-contained, free-standing structure which can be transported on trailers and delivered to and installed on the customer’s site as a modular but fully integrated part of the customer’s technological process.

The order intake in the oil and gas equipment segment grew by 244% YoY and amounted to Rub 2,963 mn versus Rub 861 mn at the end of the Q1 2011. The upturn was primarily driven by several mid-size contracts for modular equipment including pump stations and automated group metering units as well as orders for tanks and vessels and oilfield equipment manufactured by Dimitrovgradkhimmash and Sibneftemash, the Group’s subsidiaries acquired in 2011. New orders were largely represented by the contracts with expected revenue less than Rub 150 mn per contract.

EPC (Engineering, procurement and construction)

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) business segment provides project, design and construction works as well as overall project management, including on a turn-key basis, for customers in the oil and gas upstream, oil and gas transportation and water utilities sectors.
Order intake in the EPC segment rose by 151% from Rub 707 mn to Rub 1,772 mn mainly due to several mid-size construction contracts with the expected revenue less than Rub 500 mn each, signed by the Group in Q1 2012. As a result, the orders in the construction sub-segment grew 8.5x times from the low base of Rub 163 mn in Q1 2011 to Rub 1,392 mn in Q1 2012. The orders for project and design services declined by 30% from Rub 544 mn in Q1 2011 to Rub 380 mn in Q1 2012.
