LLDPE production in Russia up by 32% in 2019

January 21/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s production of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) totalled 232,300 tonnes in 2019, up by 32% year on year. All producers increased their output, and the new production in Tobolsk also started producing LLDPE, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

December total LLDPE production in Russia dropped to 21,000 tonnes, whereas this figure was 25,200 tonnes a month earlier. Kazanorgsintez and Nizhnekamskneftekhim reduced their output. Thus, overall LLDPE production reached 232,300 tonnes in 2019, compared to 175,500 tonnes a year earlier. Producers from Tatarstan raised their polyethylene (PE) production, with Kazanorgsintez showing the largest increase. A new production was also launched at ZapSibNeftekhim at the end of last year.

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

Kazanorgsintez"s December LLDPE output fell to 6,100 tonnes from 8,900 tonnes a month earlier. The Kazan producer focused on metallocene linear low density polyethylene (MLLDPE) production in the last month of 2019. The Kazan plant"s overall LLDPE output reached 34,900 tonnes last year versus 8,200 tonnes in 2018.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced 14,800 tonnes last month, compared to 16,300 tonnes in November. The plant"s overall output reached 196,600 tonnes over the stated period, up by 17% year on year.

A new producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - began shipping LLDPE to the domestic market in the last month of 2019. The new production capacities can produce about 700,000  tonnes of LLDPE per year. As a result, we can expect an even greater increase in LLDPE production in 2020.
