PP production in Russia in the first seven months of 2016 remained the same year on year

August 17/2016

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of polypropylene (PP) virtually remained in the first seven months of the year at the level of 2015, totalling slightly over 772,000 tonnes. The increased production at Tobolsk-Polymer, Polyom and Neftekhimia could not compensate for the decline in the other producers" output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

July total PP production in Russia decreased to 82,600 tonnes from 87,200 tonnes a month earlier. Last month, three producers - Stavrolen, Tobolsk-Polymer and Tomskneftekhim - simultaneously shut down their production capacities for maintenance. Russia"s overall PP output reached 772,000 tonnes in January-July 2016, which equalled the same figure of 2015.

The production structure by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

Tobolsk-Polymer, Russia"s largest PP manufacturer, produced about 13,000 tonnes last month, compared to 14,100 tonnes in June. The Tobolsk plant shut down its production in the first half of June, the plant"s PP production had been resumed by the third decade of July. Overall PP output at the Tobolsk plant reached 244,700 tonnes in the first seven months of the year, compared to 240,500 tonnes a year earlier.

The Omsk plant Poliom (part of Titan) produced over 18,100 tonbes  in July, compared to 17,900 tonnes a month earlier. The PP output at the Omsk plant was 120,400 tonnes in January-July 2016, compared to 117,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim reduced its output to 17,100 tonnes of PP last month from 18,100 tonnes in June, lower production was caused by a scheduled outage for maintenance at its ethylene and propylene unit. PP production at the Nizhnekamsk plant exceeded 126,500 tonnes in January-July 2016, whereas a year earlier, this figure was 127,200 tonnes.

Tomskneftekhim produced slightly over 4,400 tonnes of PP in July, whereas the June figure was slightly more than 9,000 tonnes. A one-month shutdown for maintenance was the main reason for low production in these two months. Overall output of this polymer at the plant exceeded 71,000 tonnes in the first seven months of the year, down by 14% year on year.

Stavrolen (part of Lukoil) took off-stream its production capacities for a one-week turnaround last month, as a consequence, the final PP output fell to 8,800 tonnes from 10,000 tonnes in June. Overall production of propylene polymers at the Budenovsk plant totalled 66,400 tonnes in January-July 2016 versus 64,800 tonnes a year earlier.

"Neftekhimia" (Kapotnya) produced 10,600 tonnes of PP in July, compared to 11,000 tonnes a month earlier. Total production reached 74,500 tonnes in the first seven months of the year, up by 12% year on year.

Ufaorgsintez produced 10,500 tonnes in July, compared to 6,300 tonnes in June (the company shut down its production for a 10-day maintenance). Overall PP output at the Ufa plant decreased to 68,600 tonnes in January-July 2016 from 72,900 tonnes a year earlier.
