Production of HDPE in Russia increased by 2.2% in January-May

June 18/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) - Production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) in Russia reached about 414,200 tonnes in January-May of this year, up 2.2% year on year. Not all producers increased the output, as per MRC ScanPlast.

Total production of HDPE in Russia fell to 86,800 tonnes in May, while a month earlier this figure barely exceeded the level of 92,000 tonnes.
The decrease in production volumes was a result of the resumption of linear polyethylene production by Nizhnekamskneftekhim. In general, total output of HDPE reached 414,200 tonnes in the first five months of the year against 405,300 tonnes a year earlier, the production volumes of two Tatar producers - Kazanorgsintez and Nizhnekamskneftekhim - reduced.

The structure of polyethylene production in the context of enterprises for the period under review was as follows.

HDPE production at Kazanorgsintez increased to 48,400 tonnes in May against 40,400 tonnes a month earlier. Total output of HDPE at the Kazan enterprise reached 219,300 tonnes in January - May of this year, down 2% than the same time in 2017.

Stavrolen produced about 25,600 tonnes in January in May against 25,800 tonnes in April. Total production of HDPE at Stavrolen reached 127,700 tonnes during the period under review, up 10% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat  reduced the capacity utilisation in May; the enterprise produced about 10,300 tonnes against 11,100 tonnes a month earlier. Total production of HDPE at the Bashkir enterprise reached 49,400 tonnes in the first five months of the year, up 19% than the same time in 2017.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced HDPE only in April and May over the period under review. Thus, Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced only 17,700 tonnes of HDPE for an incomplete two months of work versus 24,600 tonnes a year earlier.
