Karpatneftekhim raises HDPE prices by USD30/tonne

January 20/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Karpatneftekhim (Kalush, Ivano-Frankivsk region), Ukraine"s largest petrochemical plant, raised its high density polyethylene (HDPE) prices by USD30/tonne on 18 January for shipments to the domestic market, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

The plant"s clients said on Monday, the Ukrainian producer increased its HDPE prices for shipments to the domestic market by USD30/tonne from previous week. Prices started from USD1,130-1,140/tonne FCA, excluding VAT, for end-users. The price rise was primarily caused by higher feedstocks prices. 

As reported earlier, the fire that occurred at the pyrolysis furnace (dichloroethane) on January 15 did not affect Karpatneftekhim"s operations. All production units have been operating normally.
