Oriental Energy Ningbo PDH unit in China operates at full capacity in February

February 07/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Oriental Energy Ningbo said its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit had been operating at full capacity this month, reported S&P Global.

At present, this PDH plant's capacity utilisation is at 100%, as the company's polypropylene (PP) production at the same site is mainly manufacturing material used in the production of medical masks and protective clothing.

Located in Zhejiang, China, the PDH unit has a propylene capacity of 600,000 mt/year.

As MRC wrote before, in 2018, Oriental Energy Ningbo restarted its PDH unit following an unplanned outage, in end-September. The unit was shut owing to technical glitch in mid-September, 2018.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,260,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 4% year on year. Supply of almost all grades of propylene polymers increased, except for statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers).
