Ufaorgsintez began gradual shutdown of its PE production

August 31/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Ufaorgsintez (UOS, a petrochemical asset of Bashneft) has begun a gradual shutdown for maintenance, which will last until 11 October, at its high density polyethylene (LDPE) production capacities, according to the ICIS-MRC Price report.

The plant"s customers said UOS shut some of its LDPE production capacities (158 and 153 grade PE) for a scheduled turnaround on 25 August. The outage will not be long and will last approximately until 17 September. And this is the first phase of the shutdown for maintenance.

The second phase of the turnaround involves shutting the first  LDPE line (108 grade polyethylene) for maintenance from 12 September to 11 October. The plant"s overall annual production capacity of the two LDPE lines is 90,000 tonnes.

It is also worth noting that Russia"s two largest LDPE producers - Tomskneftekhim and Kazanorgsintez - will shut down their production capacities for a scheduled turnaround in September.

PJSC Ufaorgsintez produces phenol, acetone, synthetic ethylene-propylene rubber, high and low pressure polyethylene, polypropylene, more than 30 types of petrochemical products and over 25 consumer products.
