October 30/2020
MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polyethylene (PE) production totalled 2,204,200 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 63% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

September PE production in Russia was 233,200 tonnes, whereas this figure was 258,700 tonnes a month earlier, in the first month of autumn several producers stopped their capacities for repairs at once. Thus, overall PE output reached 2,204,200 tonnes in January-September 2020, compared to  1,349,000 tonnes a year earlier. Production of all PE grades rose, but LLDPE accounted for the greatest increase, which was provided by ZapSibNeftekhim.

The structure of PE output by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

September production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) in Russia exceeded 156,200 tonnes, compared with 169,000 tonnes in August;  Kazanorgsintez shut its capacities for scheduled turnaround in September-October. Russian plants" overall HDPE output reached 1,365,600 tonnes in January-September 2020, up by 96% year on year.

September total low density polyethylene (LDPE) production decreased to 28,300 tonnes from 50,300 tonnes in August, as Ufaorgsintez, Tomskneftekhim and Kazanorgsintez shut their facilities for scheduled maintenance works. Thus, overall production of this PE grade totalled 468,200 tonnes over the stated period, down by 2% year on year.

September LLDPE production rose to 48,700 tonnes from 39,300 tonnes a month earlier, ZapSibNeftekhim increased its capacity utilisation. Overall LLDPE production grew to 370,400 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020 from 174,000 tonnes a year earlier.
