About Us


42 years in American business!


Tubular Products of Texas (TPOT) was founded in 1979 by James F. Bass, after a successful career with Amoco of more than 30 years. Today TPOT is still a 100% American family business that is owned and operated by Russell and Randy Bass who continue the vision of service and integrity to the oil and gas industry.





Through strategic mill partners, TPOT provides a broad range of both import and domestic tubular options.  We supply both ERW and Seamless OCTG and line pipe products in all grades and connections as well as poly pipe.  By coordinating threading, coating, inspections, accessories, and deliveries for our customers they can focus on the holistic success of their projects.   





Because of a conservative financial philosophy, only working with quality vendors, and keeping overhead low, we have been able to successfully navigate the many volatile market fluctuations over the years.  Just as important, we have assisted our customers in navigating those difficult waters – helping them avoid pitfalls and take advantage of changing markets. 


The goal is to create an opportunity for our customers to be successful.  If you choose to give us the opportunity to work for you and with you, you will find that we are incredibly competitive and that we enjoy helping you be successful as well. 

Tubular Products of Texas, Inc. is a C Corporation formed in 1979.

Owners are brothers, Russell Bass and Randy Bass
