HDPE production in Russia up by 12% in H1 2021

July 29/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled slightly over 1 mln tonnes in the first six months of 2021, up by 12% year on year. At the same time, only one producer increased its output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

June total HDPE production in Russia dropped to 170,200 tonnes, whereas this figure was 177,600 tonnes a month earlier; Gazprom neftekhim Salavat and Kazanorgsintez reduced their capacity utilisation. Thus, overall HDPE output exceeded 1 mln tonnes in January-June 2021, compared to 892,900 tonnes a year earlier. Only ZapSibNeftekhim"s production increased, whereas three others reduced their output.

The structure of polyethylene (PE) production by plants looked the following way over the stated period.

ZapSibNeftekhim"s June total HDPE production reached 103,200 tonnes versus 101,300 tonnes a month earlier. The Tobolsk plant"s overall HDPE output reached 576,200 tonnes in the first six month of 2021, up by 46% year on year.

Kazanorgsintez"s total HDPE production fell to 31,100 tonnes last month from 38,600 tonnes in May, lower output  was caused by the increase in linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) production. Thus, the plant"s overall output of this PE grade totalled 206,000 tonnes in the first half of 2021, down by 24% year on year.

Stavrolen"s June HDPE production was 26,300 tonnes, which corresponded to the figure a month earlier. The plant"s overall HDPE output was 160,700 tonnes in January-June 2021, down by 2% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat"s total HDPE production decreased to 9,600 tonnes last month from 11,400 tonnes in May. Thus, the Salavat plant"s overall output of this PE grade totalled 58,500 tonnes in the first half of 2021, down by 9% year on year.
