The plate and strip production from low-carbon low-alloy steels for oil and gas pipes and critical duty-welded structures is today one of the most innovative branches of ferrous metallurgy. Since the 1970s, there has been a continuous development of the chemical compositions of steels and rolling technologies in order to improve the properties combining high strength, toughness, cold resistance, corrosion resistance, and weldability of steels, as well as to reduce the cost of their production.
