Angarsk Polymers Plant shut PE production

June 25/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Angarsk Polymers Plant has shut down its low density polyethylene (LDPE) production for a scheduled turnaround, according to ICIS-MRC Price Report.

The plant"s customers said Angarsk Polymers Plant took off-stream its LDPE production for the scheduled maintenance on 22 June. The outage is scheduled to last for one month. The plant"s annual production capacity is about 75,000 tonnes.

It is also worth noting that next shutdowns for maintenance at Russian plants are scheduled for July. Gazprom neftekhim Salavat will shut its LDPE production capacities for a one-month maintenance on 1 July, and Tomskneftekhim is expected to conduct maintenance works at  its production in the second half of the month.

Angarsk Polymer Plant (controlled by Rosneft through OOO Neft-Aktiv) is the only petrochemical full-cycle plant in Eastern Siberia. The bulk of the produced ethylene is used by the plant for the production of LDPE, styrene monomer (SM) and polystyrene (PS). Straight-run gasoline and hydrocarbon gases, mainly produced by OAO Angarskaya NHK, are the feedstocks for the plant.
