LDPE production in Russia rose by 19% in July

August 26/2013
MOSCOW (MRC) - Scheduled shutdowns of three Russian producers of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) in July resulted in a serious drop in the output. LDPE production in July decreased by 19%, according to MRC analysts.

Three Russian producers stopped their LDPE capacities on scheduled turnaround: Tomskneftekhim (Sibur group), "Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" (Gazprom) and Angarsk Zavod Polymerov (Rosneft), with total annual capacity of 362,000 tonnes.

Russia's imports of LDPE in July fell to 46,700 tonnes, from the level of 57,700 in June. Tomskneftekhim (SIBUR group) stopped its LDPE production on scheduled maintenance works from 19 July to 8  August. The company produced 12,800 tonnes of LDPE in less than three weeks of July.

"Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" (Gazprom) stopped production of LDPE on the turnaround from 17 July to 17 August; July production of LDPE of the plant was slightly more than 2,000 tonnes. Angarsk Zavod Polymerov (Rosneft) halted its capacities on 50-days prevention in the third decade of July; LDPE production of the plant in July was 2,400 tonnes.

Other Russian producers of LDPE, Kazanorgsyntez and Ufaorgsintez, in July kept the June level of capacity utilisation. The output of LDPE at these plants totalled 21,200 tonnes and 8,300 tonnes, respectively.

Overall, Russia's production of LDPE in the first seven months of this year totalled 374,200 tonnes, up by 4% year on year.
