According to market sources, Russia’s Sibur has started construction work at its ZapSibNeftekhim project at Tyumen, Russia. The project value was reported at around $9.5 billion.

However, the start up of the complex may take at least four years, longer than the initially projected construction time, because of some economic issues stemming from a slump in crude oil prices, a weaker rubble against the dollar and ongoing EU sanctions against the country.

The project will include a steam cracker will 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.
