According to local media reports, Azerbaijan’s state-owned oil company SOCAR’s Azerikimya Production Union plans to complete the first stage of the renovation at its ethylene-polyethylene plant as of September 20.

The company shut the plant on August 10 as a part of the company’s plans for modernization and capacity expansion while the first stage included installing automated control systems.

The existing technological installations will be modernized in the framework of the reconstruction project, according to reports. Being implemented by Technip Italy, the project is fully slated to be completed by 2019.

Azerikimya aims to raise the plant’s ethylene and PE production capacities as well as their efficiency. PE production is expected to reach 105,000 tons/year following the modernization work. The first stage of the maintenance was to be followed by some new facilities to be built.
