LONDON (ICIS)--Sibur is considering reviving its low density polyethylene (LDPE) project in the Astrakhan region in southwest Russia, a spokeswoman for the Russian chemicals producer said on Tuesday.

“Sibur is analysing the possibility of taking part in the project but there is no decision,” she said. The company does not have any information about the scope or timing of the potential project, she added.

Sibur launched a pre-feasibility study for the project, which was expected to have a 500,000 tonnes/year capacity, in 2008. The project was later put on hold.
