PP production in Russia increased by 24% from January to November

December 18/2013
MOSCOW (MRC) - Production of polypropylene (PP) in Russia increased by 24% in the first eleven months of the year, compared with the same period in 2012. The launch of new capacities in Omsk and significant growth in production by Neftekhimia and Stavrolen and were the main drivers of the increase in  output, according to the analytical review MRC ScanPlast.

Russia's PP production decreased to 72,700 tonnes in November, from 74,200 tonnes in October. However, total PP production in Russia increased to 741,300 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year (excluding the production at the facilities of Tobolsk-Polymer), compared with 599,600 tonnes year on year. Such a significant increase in PP production was achieved because of the launch of Poliom (Omsk) with capacity utilisation of 180,000 tonnes/year and increased production rates at Neftekhimia (Kapotnya) and Stavrolen (LUKOIL).


Structure of the Russia's PP production over the reported period was as follows. Stavrolen (LUKOIL) produced about 116,300 tonnes of PP in the first eleven months of the year, from 73,400 tonnes year on year. Such a big difference in the producer's performance can be explained by the shutdown in January and February and weaker capacity utilisation in 2012.

Neftekhimia (Kapotnya) showed a serious increase in PP production. The producer increased PP production to 11,400 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year because of reduced time of maintenance works, compared with 95,200 tonnes year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim (TAIF) produced about 190,200 tonnes of PP in the first eleven months of the year, compared with 194,400 tonnes in the same period in 2012. The decline in PP output resulted from the maintenance works in September at the pyrolysis furnaces, whereas in 2012 the plant was not shut for the turnaround.
Ufaorgsintez (ONC) reduced its PP production to 106,200 tonnes in the first eleven months of the year, down 6% year on year because of the tight supply of feedstock (propane-propylene fraction) in May.

Tomskneftekhim (SIBUR) reduced PP production to 115,700 tonnes in the first eleven of the year, compared with 124,000 tonnes year on year because of long time shutdown for maintenance works in July and August.

Poliom (Titan Group) launched the production of polypropylene on 11 February 2013. The company produced about 101,600 tonnes of PP in less than ten months of the year.

The second line of Tobolsk-Polymer (SIBUR) was launched in late May 2013. RF President Vladimir Putin officially started the production of polypropylene at the plant on October 10. The company has been producing PP using imported feedstock.  The producer did not disclosed the information on PP production, but Tobolsk-Polymer exported about 15,700 tonnes of PP from June to November.
