Gazprom neftekhim Salavat resuming LDPE production

September 04/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Gazprom neftekhim Salavat, one of Russia"s largest production complexes for oil refining and petrochemicals, has begun resuming its low density polyethylene (LDPE) production after a scheduled turnaround, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

The plant"s customers said Gazprom neftekhim Salavvat had started commissioning works to resume its LDPE production after the scheduled maintenance since last weekend. Gazprom neftekhim Salavat"s LDPE annual production capacity is 120,000 tonnes/year.

It is worth noting that the outage at LDPE production capacities in Salavat started on 1 July and was planned for 30 days. But the launch of the unit was postponed a month later due to a shortage of ethylene.

OAO "Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" (formerly OAO "Salavatnefteorgsintez") is one of the leading petrochemical companies in Russia, carrying out a full cycle of processing hydrocarbon material. The list of products manufactured by the plant includes more than 140 items, including 76 grades of the main products: gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, fuel oil, toluene, solvent, liquefied gases, benzene, styrene, ethylbenzene, butyl alcohols, phthalic anhydride and plasticizers, polyethylene, polystyrenes, silica gels and zeolite catalysts, corrosion inhibitors, elemental sulfur, ammonia and urea, glycols and amines, a wide range of household products made of plastics, surfactants and much more.
