Polymer producers in Russia to go ahead with building new plants

October 14/2010

MOSCOW (ICIS) -- Russiaís major producers of polymers will go ahead with their plans to build new plants, company officials said at the Russian Polymers Summit on Thursday.

 

In 2012, Sibur aims to start up its new 500,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) facility at its Tobolsk-Neftekhim subsidiary, as well as a new 330,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant at Kstovo, said Sergey Merzlyakov, vice president and head of Siburís plastics and organic synthesis business unit.


Sibur is also considering building a new 200,000 tonne/year PP plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region, as well as a major gas-chemical complex in Russiaís Far East to produce 1m tonnes/year of polyethylene (PE) and 720,000 tonnes/year of PP, Merzlyakov said.

 

The projects are expected to come on stream after 2016, he added.


Major petrochemical producer Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNKh) plans to build a new 400,000 tonne/year ethylene (C2) facility, said Evgeniy Tsyganov, deputy CEO of NKNKh.

 

The plantís PE output would reach its capacity of 230,000 tonnes/year by the end of 2011, Tsyganov said.


Russian oil major Lukoil will prioritise the development of its petrochemical arm, according to Alexander Rappoport, Lukoilís head of gas and energy coordination and sales of the petrochemical and gas products department.

 

By 2016, Lukoil aims to build a major gas-chemical complex in southern Russiaís Stavropol region to produce up to 600,000 tonnes/year of PE and 300,000 tonnes/year of PP, Rappoport said.

 

The complex, designed to utilise natural gas from Lukoilís offshore gas fields in the Caspian Sea, would include a gas processing plant and new PE/PP production facilities in Budyennovsk, Stavropol region, near Lukoilís existing PE/PP plant.


Lukoil has estimated the cost at some $2.6bn.
