PP production in Russia rose by 16% in Jan-Apr 2021

June 02/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russia"s overall polypropylene (PP) production grew in the first four months of 2021 by 16% year on year to 693,900 tonnes. All Russian producers increased their output, with Nizhnekamskneftekhim and Ufaorgsintez being the exception, according to MRC"s ScanPlast report.


Russian plants" total PP production fell to 160,500 tonnes in April from 182,600 tonnes a month earlier, ZapSibNeftekhim reduced its capacity utilisation because of a shutdown for a short turnaround. Russia"s overall PP production reached 693,300 tonnes in January-April 2021, compared to 597,900 tonnes a year earlier. Five out of seven producers increased their capacity utilisation, with Poliom and SIBUR Tobolsk/ZapSibNeftekhim accounting for the greatest growth in the output.

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


SIBUR Tobolsk/ZapSibNeftekhim reduced their output in April, their total PP production was 76,500 tonnes versus 98,000 tonnes a month earlier due to the shutdown for a short scheduled maintenance. Tobolsk complex"s PP overall output reached 363,200 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, up by 32% year on year.

Poliom (Omsk) maintained high capacity utilisation in April, and, as a result, produced about 17,500 tonnes of PP, whereas its production did not exceed 17,800 tonnes a month earlier. Overall, the Omsk plant produced 69,400 tonnes of PP over the stated period, up by 9% year on year.

Nizhnekamskneftekhim produced a little less then 18,600 tonnes of propylene polymers in April, which corresponded to the previous month"s figure. The Nizhnekamsk plant"s overall output of polymer reached 72,800 tonnes in January-April 2021, compared to 73,100 tonnes a year earlier.

Tomskneftekhim produced 12,800 tonnes of propylene polymers in April versus 13,100 tonnes a month earlier. The Tomsk plant"s total PP output reached 51,400 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, up by 1% year on year.

Ufaorgsintez operated with higher capacity utilisation in April, the plant"s total PP production was about 11,500 tonnes versus 11,400 tonnes a month earlier. The Ufa plant"s overall output of polymer reached 44,300 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, down by 2% year on year.

Neftekhimiya (Kapotnya) produced 12,500 tonnes of PP in April, compared to 13,000 tonnes a month earlier. The plant"s overall PP output reached 49,900 tonnes over the stated period, up by 1% year on year.

Stavrolen (Lukoil) produced slightly over 11,000 tonnes of propylene polymers in April versus 10,700 tonnes a month earlier. The Budenovsk plant"s overall output of propylene polymers  reached 42,900 tonnes in the first four months of 2021, up by 4% year on year.
