PP production in Russia up by 27% in Jan-Apr 2020

June 02/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polypropylene (PP) production grew in first four months of 2020 by 27% year on year, totalling 602,500 tonnes. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.


Russian producers reduced their total PP production to 129,600 tonnes in April 2020 from 146,600 tonnes a month earlier, as SIBUR Tobolsk shut its production capacities for scheduled maintenance works and Poliom reduced its capacity utilisation. Russia"s overall PP production reached 602,500 tonnes in the first four months of 2020, compared to 473,800 tonnes a year earlier. Four out of eight producers increased their capacity utilisation, with a new producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - accounting for the main increase in capacity utilisation.

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


SIBUR Tobolsk shut down its production capacities for  slightly more than a one-month turnaround in mid-March. The plant"s April output was 17,500 tonnes, compared to 22,900 tonnes a month earlier. The Tobolsk plant"s overall PP production reached 130,100 tonnes in January-April 2020, down by 17% year on year.

ZapSibNeftekhim, the second Tobolsk producer, produced 32,600 tonnes of PP in April versus 37,500 tonnes in March. The plant"s overall output totalled 149,000 tonnes in the first four months of 2020.

Omsk Poliom reduced its capacity utilisation in April, having produced about 13,000 tonnes of PP, compared to 18,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall, the Omsk plant produced 64,500 tonnes of PP in January-April 2020, down by 10% year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced about 18,000 tonnes of propylene polymers in April versus 19,100 tonnes a month earlier. The Nizhnekamsk plant"s overall output of polymer exceeded 73,100 tonnes in the first four months of 2020, compared to 68,800 tonnes a year earlier.

Tomskneftekhim produced 13,300 tonnes of propylene polymers in April versus 13,400 tonnes a month earlier. The Tomsk plant"s overall PP output reached 51,300 tonnes in January-April 2020, up by 4% year on year.

Ufaorgsintez"s production was 11,200 tonnes of PP in April, which virtually corresponded to the figure of March. The Ufa plant"s overall output of polymer reached 43,600 tonnes in January-April 2020, down 3% year on year.

Neftekhimiya (Kapotnya) produced 12,600 tonnes of PP in April, compared to 13,100 tonnes a month earlier. The plant"s overall PP output reached 49,500 tonnes in the first four months of 2020, up by 2% year on year.

Stavrolen (Lukoil) produced 11,300 tonnes of propylene polymers in April versus 11,500 tonnes in March. The Budenovsk plant"s overall output of propylene polymers reached 41,300 tonnes in the first four months of 2020 versus 33,500 tonnes a year earlier.
