Xinneng Fenghuang shut methanol units for unplanned turnaround

March 26/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Xinneng Fenghuang (Tengzhou) Energy Company has taken off-stream its all methanol units in Tengzhou, Shandong province, reported Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company has halted operations at the units on March 24, 2019 owing to technical issues. The units are expected to remain off-line for about 2-3 days.

Located in Shandong province, China, the units have a combined capacity of 920,000 mt/year.

We remind that, as MRC informed earlier, Sinopec Zhongyuan Petrochemical restarted its methanol-to-olefins (MTO) plant in China in mid-February 2019, following an unplanned outage. The was shut on November 5, 2018 owing to bearish market conditions. Located at Henan in China, the MTO plant has an ethylene and propylene capacity of 100,000 mt/year each.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 215,390 tonnes in the first month of 2020, up by 23% year on year. Shipments of all grades of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) increased due to higher capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 127,240 tonnes in January 2020, up by 33% year on year. ZapSibNeftekhim's homopolymer PP accounted for the main increase in shipments.
