According to media sources, Russia’s Sibur has moved the start-up date of its ZapSibNeftekhim complex in Tobolsk, the Tyumen region, to 2020 during a media briefing in London. The commissioning of the plant was originally slated for 2018. The company reportedly cited economic issues stemming from a slump in crude oil prices, the weaker rubble against the dollar and ongoing EU sanctions against the country as the main reasons behind the decision to alter the project’s timing.

Sibur’s ZapSibNeftekhim project will include a steam cracker with a capacity of 1.5 million tons/year of ethylene, around 500,000 tons/year of propylene and 100,000 tons/year of butane-butylene fraction. The complex will also house a 1.5 million tons/year PE plant and a 500,000 tons/year PP plant.

Meanwhile, the company will reportedly complete the the construction of its Amur petrochemical complex by around 2021-2023 while the start-up date depends on the implementation of Gazprom’s gas processing project, which is slated to be completed in the period of 2018-2022.
