November 29/2019
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Total production of polypropylene (PP) in Russia increased to about 1,163,200 tonnes in the first ten months of 2018, up 1.3% compared to the same period of 2018. Three producers out of seven reduced the capacity utilisation, according to MRC ScanPlast.

October PP production in the country increased to 103,850 tonnes, compared with 85,700 tonnes in September. Four manufacturers stopped their capacities in September at once, in October there were shutdowns at two plants. Russia's overall PP production reached 1,163,200 tonnes in January-October 2019, compared to 1,148,700 tonnes a year earlier. Poliom, Stavrolen and Nizhnekamskneftekhim reduced their capacity utilisation.

The structure of production by enterprises for the period under review is as follows.

SIBUR Tobolsk increased its capacity utilisation in October, its total production grew to 31,600 tonnes from 26,600 tonnes a month earlier.
The Tobolsk plant's total PP production reached 378,100 tonnes in the first ten months of 2019, up by 1% year on year.

Omsk Poliom (Titan) in October produced about 18,000 tonnes compared to 10,100 tonnes a month earlier; the plant shut PP production capacities 10 days turnaround in September. Total PP production at the plant over the reported period was about 174,700 tonnes, down 2% year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced 13,600 tonnes of propylene polymers in October versus 18,000 tonnes a month earlier, the decrease in production was a result of a short turnaround. The Nizhnekamsk plant's overall output of polymer exceeded 174,900 tonnes in the first ten months of 2019, compared to 179,500 tonnes a year earlier.

Last month Tomskneftekhim produced about 13,000 tonnes of propylene polymers versus 9,500 tonnes in September, the decline in production was a result of a short scheduled turnaround. Total PP production by the producer increased to 121,800 tonnes in January-October 2019, up 5% year on year.
