SIBUR resumes operations at previously unloaded facilities

Russia's petrochemical major, SIBUR recently announced it has resume operations at facilities which were put off stream in November-December 2008 period due to dearth of petrochemical demand. The units for butyl alcohol and 2-ethylhexanol production at Sibur-Khimprom (Perm) have started operations at 100% capacity which were earlier running at 60% capacity. Further, the start-up of styrene section has taken place at the Plastic plant based in Uzlovaya in the Tula Region. The butyl rubber production has been reactivated at Tolyattikauchuk while Tomskneftekhim has set a four-day working schedule for production of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and polypropylene. The company announced that it may set operations underway at Krasnoyarsk Synthetic Rubber Plant and copolymer rubber production at Togliattikauchuk by March. Nevertheless, SIBUR does not expect to see the fully restored demand for petrochemical products in 2009 and therefore some enterprises of the holding will operate at trimmed capacities.
