In April Russian PP production increased

May 22/2012

MOSCOW (MRC) --  In April, the total production of polypropylene (PP) exceeded 53,000 tonnes. Stavrolen showed serious growth in production, according to MRC analysts.

Last month, the total volume of PP production in Russia exceeded 53,000 tonnes, with an increase of 600 tonnes compared to March level. April was successful for Stavrolen (Lukoil Group). The company was able to increase the capacity utilization to 75%, the total production of polypropylene made more than 8,000 tonnes.

Neftekhimiya (Kapotnya) significantly reduced the volume of PP production last month. The company cut production volumes by more than 2,000 tonnes. Other production sites also decreased the production volumes, but not so sigificantly.


The deficit in the market of raffia resulted in a serious correction of the production programs. Russian producers increased the production of raffia  almost by one and half  by reducing the output of injection moulding PP-homo. In April, production volumes of copolymers of propylene remained at the March level.
