MOSCOW (ICIS)--Russia-based petrochemicals producer SIBUR has resumed monoethylene glycol (MEG) and ethylene (C2) production in the Nizhny Novgorod region following an unplanned shutdown, the company said on Monday.
SIBUR's MEG output was restarted on 26 January and C2 production 25 January, a SIBUR's spokesperson told ICIS on Monday. SIBUR also restarted production of ethylene oxide (EO) and other glycols on 26 January and propylene (C3) on 26 January.
These production facilities were shut down on 24 December due to technical problems at the heating unit of SIBUR's Kstovo cracker facility in the region, according to the company.
SIBUR production facilities in Nizhny Novgorod have production capacities of over 200,000 tonnes/year of MEG and 240,000 tonnes/year of C2.
