Saras CEO says climate plan to put European refineries at a serious competitive disadvantage

August 03/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Europe's "Fit for 55" package will put European refineries at a serious competitive disadvantage, reported Reuters with reference to the head of Italian refiner Saras' statement.

"This is extremely worrying... It will have huge implications for the sector," Dario Scaffardi said speaking on a conference call on second-quarter results.

The package, unveiled by the European Commission last month, aims to cut the blocs output of greenhouse gases by 55% by 2030.

As MRC wrote before, in early 2017, Rosneft JV Projects S.A. (Luxembourg), an indirect subsidiary of Rosneft Oil Company, announced the agreement to sell to institutional investors 114,120,000 ordinary shares in Saras S.p.A., representing 12% of the total share capital in Saras S.p.A., at a price of EUR 1.53 per share through an accelerated bookbuilding.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 953,400 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, which virtually corresponded to the same figure a year earlier. High density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments decreased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 607,8900 tonnes in January-May 2021, up by 33% year on year. Shipments of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas deliveries of PP random copolymers decreased.
