After stoppage of its oil refinery Linik had to switch to the
imported feedstock (PPF) from Ryazan oil refinery. Last month, Ukrainian
producer managed to produce about 6,400 tonnes of polypropylene using both own
stocks of PPF and feedstock from Russian refinery.
In April, Ryazan refinery stopped on long-term turnaround (about 45 days),
and therefore the supply of PPF to Ukraine was suspended, and as a consequence,
Linik had to stop the production of PP. Over the last fortnight, Linik produced
about 2,800 tonnes of polypropylene. However, in late May Linik plans to resume
the production of PP.
