LUKOIL resumes PP production at its Stavrolen facility following overhaul

28-Feb-09
Russia's LUKOIL Group, one of the worlds's leading vertically integrated oil and gas companies, has resumed commercial output at its Stavrolen petrochemical facility (Russia) following a complete overhaul of its polypropylene-production unit. The operations at Stavrolen facility were put off stream in April 2008 following a fire in the propylene-polymerization reactor. The company claimed accident had caused neither a toxic leak, nor any harm to human health or the environment. As per the press release, LUKOIL has planned to produce 67,300 tons of general-purpose polypropylene before the end of 2009. The polypropylene unit of Stavrolen facility - only one owned by the LUKOIL Group's petrochemical sector - was commissioned in 2007 with a capacity of 120,000 tpa and was Russia's first polypropylene-production facility using Dow Chemical's gas-phase technology - UNIPOL.
