Angarsk Polymers Plant shut PE production

August 13/2020

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 10 August. The exact terms of the forced shutdown were not announced; according to preliminary information, the resumption of production should begin on the weekend. The plant"s annual production capacity is about 75,000 tonnes.

As noted earlier, Angarsk ZP shut its facilities for scheduled maintenance works from 22 June to 2 August. It is also worth noting that three producers simultaneously intend to shut their production capacities for a turnaround in late August-September: Ufaorgsintez (shutdown in two phases, the first one - in late August), Tomskneftekhim (for two weeks from 2 September) and Kazanorgsintez (shutdown n two phases from 17 September to 13 October).

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.
