Ufaorgsintez shut PP and PE production

September 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ufaorgsintez (part of Bashneft) has shut its polypropylene (PP) production and some of its low density polyethylene (LDPE) production capacities for a scheduled  turnaround, the plant"s customers said to MRC.

The plant"s clients said Ufaorgsintez fully took off-stream its PP production for the scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, 17 September. The plant"s second LDPE line (158 and 153 grades) was also shut for a scheduled turnaround. The shutdown will be short and will last for about 12 days. The plant"s PP and LDPE production capacities are 120,000 and 90,000 tonnes per year, respectively.

It is also worth noting that this is the fourth shutdown for maintenance at Russian PP plants in September. Tomskneftekhim, Stavrolen and Poliom have taken off-stream their production capacities since the beginning of the month.

And as regards LDPE production, this is the second outage for a turnaround this month and not the last one. Tomskneftekhim shut its facilities for a two-week maintenance at the beginning of the month, and Kazanogsintez will take off-stream its LDPE production capacities from 16 September.

PJSC Ufaorgsintez produces phenol, acetone, synthetic ethylene-propylene rubber, high and low pressure polyethylene, polypropylene, more than 30 types of petrochemical products and over 25 consumer products.
