Xinneng Fenghuang restarts methanol units

June 05/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Xinneng Fenghuang (Tengzhou) Energy Company has brought on-stream its No. 2 & No. 3 methanol units in Tengzhou, Shandong province, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company resumed operations at the units following a maintenance turnaround on May 31, 2020. The units remained off-line for about three weeks.

Located in Shandong province, China, the No. 2 methanol unit has a production capacity of 360,000 mt/year and No. 3 methanol unit has a production capacity of 200,000 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 721,290 tonnes in the first four month of 2020, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments grew partially because of the increased capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim.  At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 347,440 tonnes in January-April 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Supply exclusively of PP random copolymer increased.
