November 25/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) totalled 1,618,000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2021, up by 7% year on year. At the same time, only one producer increased its output, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.

October total HDPE production in Russia dropped to 144,000 tonnes, whereas this figure was at 146,400 tonnes a month earlier; Kazanorgsintez and Stavrolen"s production capacities were shut for maintenance. Thus, overall HDPE output reached 1,618,000 tonnes in January-October 2021, compared to 1,506,000 tonnes a year earlier. Only ZapSibNeftekhim"s output increased, three other producers reduced their polyethylene (PE) production.

The PE production structure by grades looked the following way over the stated period.

SapSibNeftekhim"s October total HDPE production reached 98,200 tonnes versus 98,900 tonnes a month earlier. The Tobolsk plant"s overall HDPE output reached 984,100 tonnes in the first ten month of 2021, up by 35% year on year.

Kazanorgsintez"s overall HDPE output rose to 25,000 tonnes last month from 19,400 tonnes in September, the Kazan producer shut its production for a turnaround in the second half of September-the first decade of October. Thus, the plant"s overall production of this PE grade totalled 308,600 tonnes over the stated period, down by 24% year on year.

Stavrolen"s October HDPE production was 9,500 tonnes versus 24,900 tonnes a month earlier, the Budennovsk producer shut its production for scheduled repairs in the second decade of the month. Overall HDPE output exceeded 247,700 tonnes in January-October 2021, down by 7% year on year.

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat" total HDPE production was slightly less than 11,300 tonnes last month, its September output was 3,200 tonnes due to a long outage for maintenance works. Thus, the Salavat plant"s overall output of this PE grade totalled 78,000 tonnes in the first ten months of 2021, down by 25% year on year.
