Brown McFarlane, based in the United Kingdom supply carbon and stainless steel plate, duplex, super duplex, and also HIC (including H2S service for Petrobras projects), destined for the oil, gas, energy and mining sectors.

With the discoveries of new petroleum reserves in the pre-salt layer in the Campos Basin in Rio de Janeiro, Brown McFarlane has seen a significant increase in demand of their steel products. We carry a large stock of high quality plate from European mills meeting the stringent specifications that Petrobras demand and we can supply from only 1 plate up to large mill quantities through negotiation with our partner mills.

With over 125 years of tradition and  a dedicated export team to support our Brazilian clients we can offer a fast and specialised service in Portuguese. Brown McFarlane is quickly becoming the supplier of preference for many small, medium and large companies in Brazil. We have experience of working with the Petrobras specifications N1706 Rev.C (classes A,B,C,CH,D,DH) for SA516 GR70 plates, and also with the new revision (Rev.D), categories 1 and 2.

We also offer additional testing services at our partner test laboratories at very competitive prices for our clients’ individual requirements. These include, HIC test, SSC, Ultrasonic testing A578/A435, PWHT, Hardness test to NACE0175, Charpy impact tests and Through Thickness Z35%.  We can also provide third party inspections from Lloyds, TUV, DNV and ABS. 

Plates shipped from our warehouse can arrive into Santos Port within 30 days (other ports available upon request). Let our international shipping department take care of all your shipping and documentation requirements.
