YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Vallourec Star issued a statement Monday about adjusting its operations amid falling oil and gas prices.

In response to the declining oil and gas market, Vallourec Star is developing alternative operating plans and schedules.  These plans include flexibility in scheduling production, overtime and contractors.  We are also working with suppliers and customers to closely monitor activity.
