Tenaris has completed the previously announced acquisition from Bakrie & Brothers TbK, Green Pipe International Limited and Cakrawala Baru of a 77.45% holding in Seamless Pipe Indonesia Jaya ("SPIJ"), an Indonesian OCTG processing business with heat treatment and premium connection threading facilities, for a purchase price of US $72.5 million, with US $24.9 million being payable as consideration for SPIJ's equity and US $47.6 million as consideration for the assignment of certain sellers' loan to SPIJ.

SPIJ has an annual processing capacity of 120,000 tons and has had a commercial alliance with Tenaris for more than a decade. SPIJ employs around 500 persons and had revenues of approximately US $140 million in 2008.
