HDPE production in Russia decreased by 0.6% in January-August

September 12/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled about 648,900 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, down by 0.6% year on year. Two producers out of four reduced their output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

August HDPE production in Russia grew to 84,300 tonnes, whereas this figure was 78,300 tonnes a month earlier. The increase in production volumes was a result of the completion of scheduled maintenance works at Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat facilities. Thus, overall HDPE output reached 648,900 tonnes in January-August 2019, compared to 652,500 tonnes a year earlier. Kazanogrsintez and Stavrolen could not compensate for the lack of output at Nizhnekamskneftekhim and the reduction in production at Gazprom neftekhim Salavat.

The structure of polyethylene (PE) production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

Russia"s August HDPE production at Kazanorgsintez increased to 50,800 tonnes from 49,600 tonnes a month earlier. The Kazan plant"s overall HDPE output reached 369,200 tonnes in January-August 2019, up by 3.3% year on year.

Stavrolen produced about 28,200 tonnes last month versus 28,400 tonnes in July. The plant"s overall output reached 210,800 tonnes over the stated period, up by 7% year on year. Stavrolen on 6 September shut down its HDPE production for maintenance, which will last until 15 October.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat resumed the production of HDPE in August after the planned turnaround with a delay ; for an incomplete month of production last month, the output of polyethylene amounted to about 5,400 tonnes. The Bashkir plant"s overall HDPE output reached 66,900 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, up by 16% year on year. We remind that the Salavat producer did not take off-stream its production capacities for maintenance last year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced exclusively LLDPE over the stated period.
