Sibur has not yet decided on the licensors for the Amur Gas Chemical complex project. The company is currently working with several companies. Dmitry Konov, Chairman of the Board of Sibur, told this at a press conference dedicated to the results of 2018.
“We are conducting two so-called Extended basic designs (EBD, extended basic design) in parallel, with two pyrolysis licensors and two polyethylene licensors. These are engineering companies,” D. Konov said. “That is, two (licensors) are being considered for one process, and another two are being considered for another one”
The directors of SIBUR did not disclose exactly which companies are involved at this stage of the project development. SIBUR intends to determine the project licensors at the end of the EBD stage.
During the press conference, D. Konov recalled that the investment decision on the Amur Gas Chemical project has not yet been made; by the end of 2019, the company intends to determine its plans.
