    25 July, 2014

    The holding company Sibur is looking into the possibility of building in the Tyumen Oblast of Russia a base polymer production complex named ZapSibNeftekhim, with a planned output capacity of up to 2 mn tonnes/year.

    The ZapSibNeftekhim complex could become the largest integrated complex ever built in the Tyumen Oblast in the Russian petrochemical industry’s history, with the project calling for the construction of crackers as well as polypropylene and polyethylene production units. The designs allow for the production of up to 1.5 mn tonnes of polyethylene and up to 0.5 mn tonnes of polypropylene per year. “Sibur is still looking into the feasibility of the project and should an investment decision be made, the company will communicate it to the general public in a separate statement,” said a company representative to ITAR TASS, a news agency.
