August PP output in Russia fell by 5 %

September 24/2013
MOSCOW (MRC) -- The scheduled outage for maintenance at Tomskneftekhim and reduced capacity utilisation at Polyon and Stavrolen in August have led to a reduction in polypropylene (PP) production in Russia. The total August PP output in Russia dropped by 5% from July to 67,900 tonnes, while in July it reached 71,200 tonnes, according to MRC ScanPlast.

Tomskneftekhim (SIBUR group) resumed production later than planned after a scheduled outage for maintenance (from 19 July for three weeks). The capacity utilisation at Omsk and Budennovsk plants was also reduced last month.

Neftekhimia (Kapotnya, SIBUR) increased its capacity utilisation by 3% in August, the overall PP output reached about 10,800 tonnes from 10,500 tonnes in July. Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Ufaorgsintez virtually kept last month the July"s level of capacity utilisation. The August PP output by these plants totalled 18,500 tonnes and 9,400  tonnes, respectively.

Stavrolen was forced to cut its PP output because of techinical issues at its ethylene production (there was a failure in mid-month). The plant"s August PP output fell to 10,400 tonnes from 11,200 tonnes in the previous month.

Polyom (Titan Group) reduced its capacity utilisation in August by 16% from July and shut down its production on 1  September for a scheduled turnaround. The overall August PP output at the plant dropped to 13,300 tonnes from 15,800 tonnes in July.

The overall PP output in Russia reached more than 541,000 tonnes in the first eight months of 2013 from 436,000 tonnes in 2012. The launch of a new plant in Omsk with the nominal capacity of 180,000 tonnes per year accounted for such a significant increase in the output.
