Kanematsu and JFE Steel will build a new R&D center in the U.S. by around next summer to develop oil well pipe processing technologies used in drilling and production in oil and gas fields. The project will cost 300 million yen. Resource majors and oil-producing countries are showing signs of plowing more money into development on the back of rising oil prices. The Japanese firms will look to step up their efforts to make attractive proposals by catering to the local needs in the U.S., where shale oil and undersea oil development is gaining traction.
