In September the Russian producers reduced PVC output

October 21/2011

(MRC) -- In September, the Russian producers reduced output of unmixed PVC to 40,700 tonnes, due to limited supplies of ethylene. Over the nine months, overall production of polyvinylchloride exceeded 410,000 tonnes, according to MRC ScanPlast.

In September, the production of suspension PVC decreased to 38,800 tonnes. Sayanskchemplast and Caustic (Sterlitamak) declined the output at their facilities. The main reason for that was limited supplies of ethylene. Last month Angarsk Polymers Plant stopped for a scheduled turnaround, which resulted in reduced ethylene deliveries to Sayanskchemplast.

Caustic (Sterlitamak) short-received ethylene, due to low pressure in the ethylene tube Kazan-Nizhnekamsk-Sterlitamak-Salavat. Recently the company has declared its intention to build a separate ethylene tube in cooperation with Gazprom neftechem Salavat.

In September, PVC-E production at Chemprom (Volgograd) facilities made almost 2,000 tonnes. At the end of this week the company plans to stop its PVC capacities for a week turnaround. Some market participants have already faced the interruptions in the resin supplies to the domestic market.

Over the nine months, Russian production of unmixed PVC made 411,000 tonnes, which was 2% less year on year.Overall PVC-S production over the three quarters of 2011 amounted to 394,400 tonnes. Last year this index made 402,200 tonnes. PVC-E production remained almost the same as last year 16,600 tonnes.
