HDPE production in Russia up by 84% in Jan-Jul 2020

August 28/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled 1,040,000 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020, up by 84% year on year. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

July total HDPE production in Russia was 147,500 tonnes, whereas this figure was 114,400 tonnes a month earlier, the largest producer - ZapSibNeftekhim - raised its capacity utilisation after the shutdown for a scheduled maintenance in July. Thus, overall HDPE output reached 1,040,000 tonnes in January-July 2020, compared to 564,500 tonnes a year earlier. All producers raised their output, but ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the greatest increase.

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

Kazanorgsintez reduced its HDPE production in July in favour of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), the total production was 41,500 tonnes, compared to 42,600 tonnes a month earlier. The plant"s overall HDPE output reached 312,600 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020, down by 2% year on year.

Stavrolen shut down some of its HDPE production capacities last month due to technical issues, the total production was 22,800 tonnes versus 27,500 tonnes in June. The plant"s overall output totalled 186,700 tonnes in January-July 2020, up by 2% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat reduced its capacity utilisation in July, the plant"s HDPE production dropped to 8,700 tonnes from 11,300 tonnes a month earlier. The Salavat plant"s overall output of polyethylene (PE) reached 73,100 tonnes, up by 19% year on year, such an increase in production was caused by the absence of shutdown for  maintenance this year.

ZapSibNeftekhim produced 74,600 tonnes last month versus 33,000 tonnes in June, the low figure of the first summer month was due to a two-week shutdown for a turnaround. The plant"s overall production totalled about 468,000 tonnes over the stated period.
