Lukoil unit resumes olefins production

Stavrolen, a subsidiary of Lukoil, has resumed full production of ethylene and propylene at its complex in the Stavropol region of Russia after completing repairs to the ethylene unit, which was damaged by fire in mid-December 2011.

The complex has one of the largest pyrolysis units in Russia, with capacity of 350,000 tonnes/year of ethylene.

The complex resumed polypropylene production in March using propylene purchased from another Lukoil subsidiary, Karpatneftekhim, Kalush, Ukraine, and other Russian petrochemical manufacturers.
