In Russia HDPE production in November increased by 3%

December 12/2011

(MRC) -- In November, Russian producers increased their output of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) to 67.5 thousand tonnes. Over the 11 months, total volume of HDPE output in Russia grew by 3% and made 767 thousand tonnes, according to MRC ScanPlast.

In November, Russian producers produced about 67.5 thousand tonnes of HDPE, which was by 15% more than in October. As per MRC analysts, due to a scheduled turnaround of HDPE production at Kazanorgsyntez, Gazprom neftechem Salavat and Stavrolen, total volume of production in October fell to 58.5 thousand tonnes.

In Russia HDPE production in November increased by 3%

Last month, Russian producers increased their output of film and blow molding HDPE. However, the output of injection molding and pipe grades of polyethylene decreased. 

In some degree the decline in pipe HDPE production resulted from switching of Nizhnekamskneftechem to production of linear polyethylene in November.

Following the 11 months results, total volume of HDPE production by Russian producers made 767 thousand tonnes that was by 3% more, year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftechem has shown the greatest increase in production - about 16%. Despite the technical difficulties in the early autumn, Gazprom neftechem Salavat this year increased the volume of the HDPE by one third to the 35.5 thousand tonnes. Because of a weekly suspension for a scheduled turnaround, Stavrolen showed a modest increase in production volumes - 4%. Kazanorgsyntez, on the contrary, this year reduced production of high-density polyethylene by 8%.
