HDPE production in Russia decreased by 9% in January - November

December 25/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled about 795,800 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2019, down by 9% year on year. All producers increased their output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

November HDPE production in Russia grew to 65,500 tonnes, whereas this figure was 45,900 tonnes a month earlier. Low output in October was a result of shutdowns for maintenance at Stavrolen and Kazanorgsintez. Thus, overall HDPE production reached 795,800 tonnes in January-November 2019, compared to 877,600 tonnes a year earlier. All Russian producers reduced the production of HDPE, while Kazanogrsintez showed a minimal decrease in production volumes.

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

Russia"s November HDPE production at Kazanorgsintez increased to 36,600 tonnes from 16,700 tonnes a month earlier. The Kazan producer shut down its production for a turnaround from 26 September to 20 October. The Kazan plant"s overall HDPE output reached 454,900 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 1% year on year.

Stavrolen produced 20,100 tonnes last month, compared to 7,100 tonnes in October, the Budyonovsk producer shut its production capacities for maintenance from 6 September to 18 October. It is also worth noting that, ethylene production facilities in Stavrolen had worked with reduced load until mid-November. The plant"s overall output reached 241,400 tonnes over the stated period, down by 9% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat decreased capacity utilisation in November, the plant"s total production decreased to 8,100 tonnes from 10,500 tonnes a month earlier. The Bashkir plant"s overall HDPE output reached 95,600 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2019, down by 12% year on year. Such a great reduction in HDPE production was caused by a long turnaround in July, whereas the Salavat producer did not shut its production capacities for maintenance last year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced exclusively linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) over the stated period.
