LUKOIL resumes PP production at its Stavrolen facility following overhaul

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.
