Sinopec Qilu to shut LDPE plant in China for scheduled turnaround

August 05/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) - Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical, a subsidiary of one of the world's largest energy and chemical companies - Sinopec, intends to shut down its low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Tianjin, in northeast China for a scheduled maintenance on 10 August, 2021, according to CommoPlast.

It is expected that the turnaround at this plant, which can produce 175,000 mt/year of LDPE, will last for about 50 days. Thus, this facility may resume operations on 28 September, 2021.

As MRC reported earlier, the company took off-stream its LDPE plant for unscheduled repairs from 6 March to 24 April, 2017.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, May estimated LDPE consumption in Russia grew to 47,730 tonnes from 37,630 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers increased their LDPE shipments to the domestic market by reducing exports. Russia's estimated LDPE consumption totalled about 235,610 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, up by only 1% year on year.

Sinopec corp. is one of the world's largest integrated energy and chemical companies. Business Sinopec Corp. includes oil and gas exploration, production and transportation of oil and gas, oil refining, petrochemical production, production of mineral fertilizers and other chemical products. In terms of refining capacity, Sinopec Corp. ranks second in the world, in terms of ethylene capacity - fourth.
