Angarsk Polymer Plant shut its PE production

July 09/2018
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Angarsk Polymer Plant (part of Rosneft) has shut down its low density polyethylene (LDPE) production for a scheduled maintenance, according to the ICIS-MRC Price report.

The plant"s customers said Angarsk Polymer Plant took off-stream its LDPE production capacities for the scheduled turnaround on 2 July. The outage will not be long and will last approximately until 10 August. The plant"s annual production capacity is 80,000 tonnes.

This is the second shutdown for maintenance at Russian LDPE plants in July. As it was reported earlier, Gazprom neftekhim Salavat shut down its LDPE production for a turnaround on 1 July. The outage lasted for 30 days. The plant"s annual production capacity is 45,000 tonnes.

Angarsk Polymer Plant (controlled by Rosneft through OOO Neft-Aktiv) is the only petrochemical full-cycle plant in Eastern Siberia. The bulk of the produced ethylene is used by the plant for the production of LDPE, styrene monomer (SM) and polystyrene (PS). Straight-run gasoline and hydrocarbon gases, mainly produced by OAO Angarskaya NHK, are the feedstocks for the plant.
