Mehr Petrochemical to restart HDPE plant in Iran

March 25/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Mehr Petrochemical Company (MHPC), a major petrochemical producer in Iran, is in the middle of resumption of operation at its high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant in Assaluyeh, Iran, reported CommoPlast.

This HDPE line with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons/year was shut unexpectedly last week after a technical glitch.

A source close to the company confirmed that the shutdown has not severely affected the supply.

As MRC informed before, Iranian petrochemical company Ilam Petrochemical resumed production at its HDPE plant in Ilam (Ilam, Iran) on May 22, 2019, which was shut earlier due to an explosion on an ethylene pipeline, which supply ethylene to the plant. This plant with a capacity of 300,000 tons/year of HDPE was taken off-strem in early April, 2019.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's HDPE production totalled 329,800 tonnes in the first two months of 2021, up by 13% year on year. At the same time, only one Russian producer increased HDPE output.

Mehr Petrochemicals HDPE plant is a joint venture between Thailands PTT Chemical and Siam Cement, Irans National Petrochemical Co (NPC) and Japans Itochu.
