PP production in Russia down by 2.2% in 2018

January 25/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) � Russia�s overall  polypropylene (PP) production dropped by 2.2% year on year in 2018, totalling 1,370,500  tonnes. At the same time, only two out of seven producers reduced their output, according to MRC�s ScanPlast report.

Local PP producers� December total output rose to 130,700 tonnes versus 91,100 tonnes a month earlier, SIBUR Tobolsk and Ufaorgsintez increased their capacity utilization.

Russia�s overall production reached 1,370,500 tonnes in 2018, compared to 1,400,900 tonnes a year earlier. At the same time, only SIBUR Tobolsk and Ufaorgsintez reduced their output over the stated period, whereas other producers managed to raise it.

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

SIBUR Tobolsk had solved its technical production problems by December, the plant�s total output rose to 46,700 tonnes versus 18,700 tonnes a month earlier. The Tobolsk plant�s overall production reached 436,100 tonnes last year, down by 15% year on year. Such a great reduction in production was caused by two shutdowns for maintenance.

Omsk Poliom (part of Titan) produced 19,100 tonnes of PP last month, compared to 17,600  tonnes in November. The Omsk plant�s overall production totalled 214,200 tonnes in 2018, up by 4% year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced 18,500 tonnes of polymers of propylene in December versus 17,800 tonnes a month earlier. The Nizhnekamsk plant�s overall output increased to 215,800 tonnes last year, compared to 210,800 tonnes in 2017.

Tomskneftekhim produced 12,400 tonnes of propylene polymers last month, as in November. The Tomsk plant�s overall output reached 141,300 tonnes in 2018, which is virtually comparable to the figure for 2017.

Ufaorgsintez�s total PP production was 11,400 tonnes in December versus 9,700 tonnes a month earlier, the plant operated with reduced capacity utilization in early November because of feedstock problems. The Ufa plant�s overall output of polymer did not exceed 119,300 tonnes last year, compared to 124,500 tonnes a year earlier.

Neftekhimia (Kapotnya) produced 10,700 tonnes last month versus 10,200 tonnes in November. The plant�s overall output reached 131,400 tonnes in 2018, up by 23% year on year. Last year�s increase in production was caused by the absence of shutdown for maintenance.

Stavrolen (LUKOIL) produced slightly more than 11,900 tonnes of polymers of propylene in December, compared to 7,600 tonnes a month earlier, the plant shut its production a one-week turnaround in early November. The Budenovsk plant�s overall output of propylene polymers reached 111,800 tonnes versus 101,000 tonnes a year earlier.
