Kazmunaygas and Tatneft to start up inew butadiene plant in Kazakhstan by 2025

April 12/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Kazakhstan's national vertical integrated oil and gas company Kazmunaygas (KMG) and Russia's Tatneft have agreed to go ahead with a butadiene rubber production project in Kazakhstan's Atyrau region before 2025, where around 186,000 mt of butadiene rubber and 170,000 mt of isobutane will be produced, reported S&P Global with reference to KMG's statement.

Butane feedstocks from the local oil and gas producer Tengizchevroil will be used for this project, KMG said.
The Kazakh national company said that the partnership with Tatneft will create an integrated domestic tire production, while also will make the product available for export into Europe, Russia, China, Turkey and other countries.

Thus, companies started the construction of an automotive tire plant in Saran, Karaganda region in central Kazakhstan on 5 April under a 2019 memorandum of understanding between the two companies.

Meanwhile, this will be the first synthetic rubber and tire production facility newly built in Kazakhstan, since the only tire factory in Shymkent built during the Soviet times was fully shutdown in 2007 after several changes in ownership.

As MRC wrote previously, PJSC Tatnefts Tatneftegazpererabotka (UTNGP) is adding a new unit as part of an ongoing modernization program at its Minnibayevo gas processing plant (MGPP) in Tatarstans Almetyevsk region. Recently approved for its permit to build, the project includes construction of a normal butane (n-butane) processing unit and associated off-site installations within the boundaries of the existing MGPP complex.

Butadiene is the main feedstock for the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).

According to ICIS-MRC Price report, ABS imports into Russia totalled 2,700 tonnes in January, compared to 2,600 tonnes a month earlier and 2,300 tonnes in January 2020.
