Lukoil deays reopening of polyethylene production at fire-damaged Stavrolen chemicals site

08-May-12
Russia’s leading independent oil producer Lukoil has had to put back the re-opening of polyethylene production at its fire-damaged Stavrolen chemicals site by four months due to delayed equipment supply, as per European Plastics News. Earlier this year, production was estimated to restart in early April, following a devastating €20 mln blaze in the site’s ethylene plant in mid-December 2011. But persistent delays in procuring plant equipment from overseas have deferred start up of ethylene unit until August. The Stavrolen fire was caused by a leak in a gas separation unit of the site’s ethylene plant and led to a partial shutdown of the site for extensive plant repair and renewal. The petrochemical complex turned out 684,000 tpa, mainly PE last year.
