August PE production in Russia was kept at the level of July

September 24/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) - Russian producers  practically managed to keep the output of polyethylene (PE) in August at the July's level, despite scheduled maintenance in Salavat and Angarsk, according to MRC ScanPlast.

Russia's PE production in August was 135,200 tonnes from 135,800 tonnes in July. The increase in production at the facilities of Ufaorgsintez, Tomskneftekhim and Kazanorgsintez offset the decrease in the PE production in Salavat and Angarsk because of the scheduled maintenance works there.

Russia's PE production by grades in August was as follows. Production of low density polyethylene (LDPE) in August was about 46,100 tonnes, which is equal to July's results. The decline in PE production at "Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" and " Angarsk polymer plant " due to the maintenance works in August was offset by an increase in the output by Ufaorgsintez and Tomskneftekhim.

August production of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fell to 89,100 tonnes, from 89,700 tonnes in July. A number of plants reduced HDPE production in August (Stavrolen - down by 6% from July;  "Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" - down by more than twofold due to the turnaround; Nizhnekamskneftehim - down by 2% from July), while Kazanorgsyntez increased its HDPE production to 44,500 tonnes, up by 8% compared to July.

Overall, Russia's PE production exceeded 1.11 m tonnes in the eight months of this year, from 888,000 tonnes year on year.
