May 17/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) --  A fire in four oil pipelines that feed Aqaba refinery has been put out, reported Reuters with reference to Jordan's state news agency.

Jordan security added the fire was extinguishe before it reached crude oil storages, and it wonТt affect gas supplies to any part of Jordan.

We remind that, as MRC informed earlier, on 7 April, 2021, a major fire broke out at an oil refinery run by Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) in the eastern city of Minatitlan in the southern state of Veracruz. According to media reports and Mexico's safety, the blaze started at this refinery, one of six operated by Pemex, which has a capacity of up to 285,000 barrels per day, on Wednesday afternoon.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 576,270 tonnes in the first three month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 410,890 tonnes in January-March 2021, up by 56% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
