MRC Global, Shell sign EFA for five years
For the last 15 years, leading global PVF distributor MRC Global and Shell have worked together throughout the world. On May 30, the companies continued their long-standing relationship as Houston-based MRC signed a five-year, global Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) for distribution of valves and automation services.
The EFA covers Shell’s upstream, midstream and downstream project and maintenance repair operations requirements in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. It also covers carbon steel, stainless and alloy pipe, fittings and flanges in the U.S. and stainless steel and alloy pipe, fittings and flanges in Canada.
With the agreement, Shell expects MRC to be the single-source provider of valves and the central distributor of the other products to Shell’s business units in the specific areas.
“We are pleased that Shell continues to place their confidence in MRC to supply their operations with these important products,” MRC Chairman, President and CEO Andrew Lane said.
“Based on activity projections, this five-year agreement represents the largest distribution contract that we have entered into with a global customer. By providing a ‘one-stop’ distribution platform for these products, we will assist Shell in driving standardization of their PVF materials requirements throughout their global organization.”
