PVC production in Russia up by 15% in January-September 2017

October 10/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia's overall production of unmixed polyvinyl chloride (PVC) grew in the first nine months of 2017 by 15% year on year, totalling 652,500 tonnes. Only two producers have grown resin production: SayanskKhimPlast and Kaustik (Volgograd), according to MRC ScanPlast.

September production of unmixed PVC in Russia grew to 75,100 tonnes from 46,500 tonnes a month earlier, all producers, two producers increased production volumes: SayanskKhimPlast and Bashkir Soda Company. Overall PVC production reached  652,500 tonnes in January-September 2017, compared to 565,000 tonnes a year earlier. Only two plants out of four increased their output, and this year's high level of production growth was caused by the long forced outage at SayanskKhimPlast in February-July 2016.

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

RusVinyl (JV SIBUR and SolVin) last month further reduced the capacity utilisation, the enterprise produced about 20,700 tonnes of polyvinyl chloride in September, of which about 2,100 tonnes of emulsion polyvinyl chloride (EPVC), against 23,400 tonnes a month earlier. The reduction of production volumes was a result of scheduled maintenance works. Thus, RusVinyl's overall production of resin reached 224,600 tonnes in the first nine months of 2017, which almost the same as last year.

September PVC production at SayanskKhimPlast reached about 25,300 tonnes against 3,300 tonnes a month earlier. The low production in August was due to the prolonged preventive maintenances, which started on 24 July and ended on 25 August. SayanskKhimPlast managed to produce more than 184,600 tonnes of resin over the stated period versus 84,800 tonnes a year earlier (the low output in 2016 was caused by the forced long outage from mid-February to July).

Bashkir Soda Company last month produced about 22,700 tonnes of PVC  versus 12,100 tonnes in August (a low production figure in August was a result of the forced shutdown of production for almost two weeks due to the lack of ethylene). The plant's output of resin totalled about 175,600 tonnes in the first nine months of 2017, compared to 190,700 tonnes a year earlier.

Kaustik Volgograd at the end of September shut its capacity for planned preventive repairs, for an incomplete month of work the enterprise managed to produce about 6,400 tonnes of PVC against 7,700 tonnes a month earlier. The plant's overall production of resin reached 67,700 tonnes over the stated period, compared to 64,800 tonnes a year earlier.
