In Russia PP production over 11 months grew by 10%

December 21/2011

(MRC) -- In November, Russian producers increased their output of polypropylene (PP) to 57.5 thousand tonnes. In general, over the 11 months, overall amount of PP production in Russia grew by 10% to 626 thousand tonnes, according to MRC ScanPlast.

In November, the total volume of PP production in Russia grew by 2% compared with October and made 57.5 thousand tonnes. However, despite the total increase of production volumes, Ufaorgsyntez (Bashneft) and Neftekhimia (Sibur managed company) last month reduced their PP production volume. In November, these companies reduced the output by 21% and 19% compared with October, correspondingly.

At the end of last month there was a slight decrease of raffia production in favour of injection molding grades of PP-homo. The total volume of copolymers of propylene made 10.4 thousand tonnes, that was by 13% more compared with the October index.

In general, over January-November, Russian producers made 626 thousand tonnes of PP and its copolymers, that was by 10% more year on year.

Actually all Russian producers work  with capacities utilization close to 100%, and the current production growth was mainly due to reduced period of scheduled turnarounds, particularly at Neftekhimia and Ufaorgsyntez.

According to preliminary estimates, at 2011 year end, the total PP production in Russia made about 680 thousand tonnes, against 626 thousand tonnes in 2010. The results of 2011 were shadowed by an accident at Stavrolen. There are no official statements from Lukoil about the accident, but according to Minister of Industry, Energy and Transport of the Stavropol region, Dmitry Samatov, polymer production at the petrochemical plant will be resumed in February 2012.
