June 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nghi Son Refinery & Petrochemical (NSRP) is currently operating its polypropylene (PP) plant in Vietnam at about 70% capacity following a change in the catalyst used in the production processes, reported CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

The unit would be able to restore the normal rates in ten days.

Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical operates a 370,000 tons/year PP unit. 

As MRC reported before, NSRP shut its PP unit on 21 June, 2019, owing to technical issues. The exact duration of the shutdown could not be ascertained. Besides, the company conducted a scheduled maitenance at this unit from 22 October, 2019, to end-November, 2019.

We also remind that Vietnams Nghi Son oil refinery officially began commercial production from 14 November 2018, following months of tests. The USD9 billion refinery is 35.1 percent owned by Japans Idemitsu Kosan Co, 35.1 percent by Kuwait Petroleum, 25.1 percent by PetroVietnam and 4.7 percent by Mitsui Chemicals Inc.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, 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.
