MOSCOW (ICIS news)--A new Russian refinery and petrochemical plant is to be built at Tomsk in Western Siberia, regional authorities said in a statement on Tuesday.
The new facility would be built near the existing Tomskneftekhim petrochemical plant at a cost of $850-900m (€680-720m), with construction expected to start in late 2011, they said.
In 2008 Tomskneftekhim, which is controlled by Sibur, raised its LDPE production capacity from 170,000 tonnes/year to 230,000 tonnes/year.
Last year, Tomskneftekhim’s LDPE production reached 242,000 tonnes, up 7.6% year-on-year, and PP output amounted to 116,000 tonnes, representing a 3% increase. The company also produced 250,000 tonnes of C2 and 119,000 tonnes of C3.
