Global OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) Market Report: 2014 Edition Industry, Analysis, Growth, Trends, Share, Size Research Report

Oil country tubular goods (OCTG) are hollow steel products of circular cross-section used in the oil and gas industry for exploration and production activities. OCTG encompasses mainly three types of products which include drill pipe, casing, and tubing. OCTG can be produced as seamless or welded tubes and pipes. The OCTG manufacturers can generally either produce seamless or welded OCTG products and not both, as the capital investment to manufacture seamless OCTG is ten to twenty times higher than the investment required to manufacture welded OCTG. At the same time, API specifications for most grades of casing and tubing stipulate that either welded or seamless construction is acceptable for end-use applications. Generally, welded pipe producers entering the OCTG market concentrate on producing line pipe and in some cases, some low grades of API casing. Browse Full Report @

Employee Benefits in Turkey Market, Trends, Share, Size Research Report

The Turkish social security system is largely similar to the Continental model, with employee contributions made according to their insurance and payroll status. Contributions are collected in a joint pool and pensions are paid, on becoming eligible, according to contributions made. From 1990, a number of financial problems arose in the Turkish social security system due to implementation of early retirement, an increase in unregistered employment, and low rates of contributions and income subject to contributions. The system does not cover the entire population, and does not have sufficient protection against poverty. This unsystematic method limited consistency in standards with respect to employee rights and obligations. Social security reform was introduced in 2008 to address these issues. Browse Full Report @
