(trend) -- SOCAR plans by 2014 to launch
polypropylene and low density polyethylene production, SOCAR head Rovnag
Abdullayev told reporters.
"Currently, the design work is being carried out as part of creation of shops
for the production of polypropylene and low density polyethylene," said
Abdullayev. He said the new facility will allow SOCAR to provide raw material to
new chemical industrial park to be established in Sumgayit.
"The company is now working with the Ministry of Economic Development of
Azerbaijan on a project to create a new park," said the SOCAR head. In
particular, SOCAR has been working to clean up territory which is on the balance
of the Azerkimya production association, set aside for the park.
Upon the completion of this work, the area will be transferred to the
Economic Development Ministry. Small enterprises for the production of the final
chemical products will be created in this area.
