November 06/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The joint venture Uz-Kor Gas Chemical, established by the National Holding Company Uzbekneftegaz and the investment consortium of Korean companies - Kogaz, Lotte Group and STX Energy, resumed its production of polymers after the turnaround, according to ICIS-MRC Price Report with reference to the plant"s customers.

The plant"s clients said Uz-Kor Gas Chemical began to gradually resume work on 1 November after the scheduled maintenance at its high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) production capacities. One of two reactors for HDPE production was launched in the morning of 2 November.

The outage started in early October and should be completed by 27 October. But due to technical problems, the turnaround was extended by almost a week.

As MRC reported earlier, Uz-Kor Gas Chemical was founded on the basis of Ustyurt Gas Chemical Comples (Surgil deposit). The total cost of the project is over USD4 billion. The complex provides processing of 4.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas and includes HDPE and PP production facilities with the annual capacity of 386,000 and 80,000 tonnes, respectively.
