Egypt’s SIDPEC: We deliver HDPE from daily production

A source from Egypt’s HDPE producer SIDPEC reported that they are delivering good amounts to the local market without any problems. The source further commented that they are actually delivering from their daily production instead of their stocks because of the good demand they see towards their cargoes.

“Even though demand is good, we are not operating at full capacity at our plant due to ethane gas tightness. Our plant is currently running at 85% capacity but we are planning to increase the production rates as of next week, early March. At the moment, we can deliver all HDPE grades but our HDPE blow moulding deliveries are slightly limited since our HDPE film/ blow moulding swing line is set to produce HDPE film this week. Regarding demand, we see healthy buying interest and we anticipate demand to improve further in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, for our March announcements, we are still monitoring the global market in order to make our decision.”

For February, SIDPEC had issued rollovers on their HDPE prices. The producer’s HDPE offers were steady at EGP10500/ton ($1341/ton) for film, at EGP11000/ton ($1405/ton) for b/m and at EGP11000-11500/ton ($1405-1469/ton) for injection on an ex-Alexandria, 60 days deferred payment excluding VAT basis.
