Vallourec attends at Rio Oil & Gas Expo and Conference between September 24h and 27th, a biennial and main event of Oil & Gas in Latin America that will be held at the Convention Center RioCentro, Rio de Janeiro.

The largest oil and gas industry event in the Latin American, Rio Oil & Gas, will count with the participation of Vallourec, the world leader in premium tubular solutions and one of the leading suppliers to the sector. Between September 24th and 27th, at Riocentro, prospects and future paths of the oil and gas chain in Brazil and in the world will be debated through congress, exhibitions and side events.
