According to MRC data, we can see that in the first 11 months of 2017, the volume of PE production in Russia reached about 1,547,400 tons, up 0.5% over the same period last year.
Russia’s PE output in November rose to about 130,000 tons, the previous month (October) of the data is about 100,000 tons. The weakness in October was due to regular maintenance by Kazanorgsintez and Stavrolen, the two major manufacturers. From January to November 2017, the total PE exports reached 1,547,400 tons, up from 1,554,700 tons last year. Low-density polyethylene LDPE and LLDPE exports increased, while HDPE production declined.
HDPE production in November dropped 46,400 tons to 63,700 tons from October. The two largest manufacturers, Kazanorgsintez and Stavrolen, stopped production in October for regular maintenance. In the first 11 months of 2017, the total export volume of HDPE in Russia reached about 820,000 tons, up 9% over the previous year.
In November Russia’s LDPE production rose to 60,000 tons in October to 59,000 tons. Kazanorgsintez also increased production. The total output of LDPE in the first 11 months exceeded 600,000 tons, up 5% over the previous year.
Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Russia’s only LLDPE producer, has seen a significant increase in production this year, with LLDPE producing around 120,000 tonnes in the first 11 months of this year, down from 73,000 last year.
