Shanghai Golden Phillips restarts HDPE production in Shanghai after turnaround

November 18/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shanghai Golden Phillips Petrochemical Co, part of Sinopec, has brought on-stream its high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant, after a maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China, informed that, the company halted operations at the plant on October 22, 2019, and restarted this unit on November 13, 2019.

Located in Shanghai, China, the HDPE plant has a production capacity of 140,000 mt/year.

As MRC wrote before, in 2018, Shanghai Golden Phillips Petrochemical resumed operations at its HDPE plant in Shanghai on September 12, 2018. The plant was shut for maintenance turnaround on August 14, 2018.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's September estimated HDPE consumption fell to 70,570 tonnes from 108,320 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers reduced their output due to maintenance works, whereas imports were high partially because of an increase in US shipments. The estimated HDPE consumption totalled 862,170 tonnes in January-September 2019, up by 7% year on year. HDPE imports increased by 47%, whereas production dropped by 5% due to a long period of maintenance works at three production capacities.

China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec Group) is a super-large petroleum and petrochemical enterprise group established in July 1998 on the basis of the former China Petrochemical Corporation. Sinopec Group's key business activities include the exploration and production of oil and natural gas, petrochemicals and other chemical products, oil refining.
