NSRP to restarts its new PP plant in Vietnam on 17 October after unscheduled turnaround

October 15/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical (NSRP) is in plans to resume operations at its new polypropylene (PP) plant in Vietnam on 17 October, 2021, after an unscheduled maintenance, reported CommoPlast.

The 400,000 mt year of PP plant was unexpectedly shut on 7 October, 2021,  due to a technical glitch.

As MRC reported earlier, NSRP has just recently completed maintenance works at its new polypropylene (PP) plant in Vietnam. This plant was shut on 24 August, 2021, instead of the initially scheduled date of 17 August, for approximately three weeks. The company decided to postpone the maintenance shutdown at this plant by one week from the previous schedule due to the COVID-19 related lockdown. Thus, the new PP plant came back on-line in mid-September, 2021.

We also remind that Vietnams Nghi Son oil refinery officially began commercial production from 14 November 2018, following months of tests. The USD9 billion refinery is 35.1% owned by Japans Idemitsu Kosan Co, 35.1% - by Kuwait Petroleum, 25.1% - by PetroVietnam and 4.7% - by Mitsui Chemicals Inc.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 841,990 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, up by 29% year on year. Supply of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas supply of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) subsided.
