PP production in Russia increased by 13% in January-May

July 02/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Russia"s production of polypropylene (PP) increased to about 851,100 tonne in first five months of this year, up 13% year on year, compared to the same period of 2020. Three producers increased their output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

Russian plants" total PP production fell to 158,000 tonnes in May from 160,500 tonnes a month earlier, ZapSibNeftekhim reduced its capacity utilisation because of a shutdown for a short turnaround in April-May. Russia"s overall PP production reached 851,100 tonnes in January-May 2021, compared to 756,500 tonnes a year earlier. Three out of seven producers increased their capacity utilisation, with SIBUR Tobolsk/ZapSibNeftekhim accounting for the greatest growth in the output.

The structure of PP production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

In May, SIBUR Tobolsk / ZapSibNeftekhim actually kept the April level of capacity utilisation, the total polypropylene production rate was 76,900 tonnes (at the end of April - beginning of May, the company carried out scheduled maintenance). Tobolsk complex"s PP overall output reached 439,300 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, up by 25% year on year.

Omsk Poliom also kept its capacity utilisation at the level of April, and, as a result, produced about 17,400 tonnes of PP. Overall, the Omsk plant produced about 86.800 tonnes of PP over the stated period, up by 10% year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced a little less then 18,700 tonnes of propylene polymers in May, which corresponded to the previous month"s figure. The Nizhnekamsk plant"s overall output of polymer reached 91,400 tonnes in January-May 2021, compared to 92,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Tomskneftekhim produced 13,300 tonnes of propylene polymers last month versus 12,800 tonnes a month earlier. Total PP production by the producer increased to 64,800 tonnes in January-May 2021, up 1% year on year.

Ufaorgsintez worked in May with lower capacity utilisation, the final indicator of polypropylene production amounted to about 9,500 tonnes against 11,500 tonnes a month earlier. The Ufa plant"s overall output of polymer reached 53,400 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, down by 3% year on year.

Neftekhimiya (Kapotnya) produced 13,000 tonnes of PP last month, compared to 12,500 tonnes a month earlier. The plant"s overall PP output reached 62,900 tonnes over the stated period, which was the same as in 2020.

Stavrolen (Lukoil) produced slightly over 9,200 tonnes of propylene polymers in May versus 11,000 tonnes a month earlier. The Budenovsk plant"s overall output of propylene polymers reached 52,100 tonnes in the first five months of 2021,  which was the same as in 2020.
