October 23/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Qatar Petroleum is pleased to announce the commencement of supply of ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) by the QP Refinery in Mesaieed for the domestic transportation market, effective from today, bringing all diesel sold in the country to the highest specifications, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The ULSD is a higher grade and cleaner premium diesel fuel, which meets the European Emission Standard Euro 5 specifications. With this announcement, Qatar Petroleum reaffirms its commitment towards the environment in the State of Qatar and globally.

The start of ULSD production follows the successful upgrade of the QP Refinerys Diesel Hydro-treating Units, resulting in a maximum of 10 ppm sulfur diesel.

On this occasion, His Excellency Mr. Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said, We are pleased to announce this new addition to our products, which supports two of our strategic objectives continuous efficiency improvements and environmental excellence. The production of ULSD by Qatar Petroleum is an important milestone for our downstream business, and I would like to thank my colleagues in QP operations who have worked diligently and safely to ensure that we achieve this important environmental milestone, which meets the stringent Euro 5 specifications."

This important step is an integral part of Qatar Petroleums strategy of maximizing the added value of Qatars downstream businesses, and delivering on our commitment to protect and enhance the environment through world-class standards and practices.

As MRC informed earlier, in July, the Chevron Phillips joint venture postponed final approval for a USD8 billion Gulf Coast plant, which it planned to approve next year with Qatar Petroleum.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall PE production totalled 1,712,400 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020, up by 58% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output. At the same time, overall PP production in Russia increased in January-July 2020 by 24% year on year to 1,063,700 tonne. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output.
