Shenhua Xinjiang unexpectedly shut is LDPE plant in China

November 16/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shenhua Xinjiang Mining Co (part of Shenhua Group) has unexpectedly shut its low density polyethylene (LDPE) due to technical glitches on its pipeline, reported CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

Thus , the company's LDPE plant, based in Xinjiang, China and with the capacity of 300,000 tons/year, was taken off-stream on 11 November, 2020, an is expected to remain off-line for seven days.

As MRC wrote before, last year, the company conducted scheduled maintenance works at this plant from 16 August to 24 September.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, September estimated LDPE consumption in Russia fell to 23,930 tonnes from 47,610 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers reduced their domestic LDPE shipments due to shutdowns for maintenance at production capacities in Ufa, Tomsk and Kazan. Russia's estimated LDPE consumption totalled about 406,500 tonnes in January-September 2020, which virtually corresponded to the last year's figure.
