September 19/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) - ZapSibNeftekhim, owned by SIBUR, has launched a pyrogas compressor, which resulted in flaring, Fedpress reports citing the SIBUR press service.

The company said that ZapSibNeftekhim began to launch pyrogas compressor from 12 September. This process can be accompanied by short-term intense combustion in a pyrolysis flare unit. As part of the commissioning, a test start-up of the compressor was carried out in May; last week a start-up was carried out on raw materials for running equipment on process media. The final stage of commissioning is the launch of equipment in accordance with the working scheme.

According to the press service, for the safe course of the process of setting up the equipment, the pyrolysis flare unit operates. Torch burning is necessary to prevent contingencies at work.

УIn the process of burning, industrial gases are converted into carbon dioxide and water, and to prevent soot formation, water vapor is supplied to the flare. We measure the level of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, dust. All indicators are within normal limits, " said SIBUR.

It was noted earlier that SIBUR completed the construction of its largest project, the ZapSibNeftekhim petrochemical complex in April, and began commissioning it. It is planned to bring the plant to full capacity after 2021.

The ZapSibNeftekhim project is expected to add 2m tonnes of polymers Ц 1.5m tonnes/year of PE and 500,000 tonnes/year of polypropylene - 2m tonnes of olefins and 100,000 tonnes/year of C4. The cracker at the site is in the process of being commissioned.

The project budget for the construction of the Zapsibneftekhim petrochemical plant in 2018Ц2020 will amount to USD2.7 bn.

It was also reported that SIBUR could conduct an IPO after the launch of ZapSibNeftekhim and aimed at doubling the company's business.

In September, the Director General of SIBUR, Mikhail Karisalov, said that SIBUR intends to complete the commissioning and start up ZapSibNeftekhim early next year.

OAO SIBUR Holding is the largest petrochemical company in Russia and Eastern Europe with full coverage of the industry cycle from gas processing, production of monomers, plastics and synthetic rubbers to plastics processing.
