Restart of operations at the iron ore mine in Brazil

Meudon (France), May 4th, 2022 – Vallourec announces that it has restarted operations partially at its iron ore mine, after having obtained the approval of the mining authorities to resume them for a period of 3 months, without using the waste pile. Under these temporary conditions, it is targeted to progressively ramp up from 70% to full capacity. Vallourec continues to, in parallel, prepare the return to normal operations, which will be subject to the validation of the stability of the waste pile by the mining and state environmental authorities.
