"Kazanorgsintez" completed the first phase of the reconstruction with the introduction of a new installation of Ethylene-500, which will increase the capacity of ethylene production by 1.5 times.
December 22, implemented the new plant "Ethylene-500". Now on the ethylene complex mode completed commissioning of marketable yield of ethylene, which goes to further polymerization.
Initially, "Ethylene-500" was designed for increasing the supply of ethane from the Orenburg gas processing plant (JSC "Gazprom") and Minnebaevskogo Processing Plant (JSC "Tatneft"). For several reasons, this did not happen. Now "Kazanorgsintez" expect the reconstruction GPP "Tatneft", which will increase the supply of ethane from 90,000 tons to 140,000.
It is clear that the capacity for ethane will be underutilized. Therefore, the company is going to change in raw material supply, began working in part on propane. Today, the regime has already worked through. Thus, at the JSC "Kazanorgsintez" Ethylene plant will use three types of raw materials — ethane, butane and propane. Analogs such installations to date anywhere in the world.
"Kazanorgsintez" is one of the largest manufacturers of polyethylene and polyethylene pipes in Russia. A majority stake owned by the company "Telecom Management" (100% probability "daughter" of "Taif"), 28.4% — the state of "Svyazinvestneftekhim."
