SIBUR is working on a project to construct Amur GCC with a capacity of 1.5 mtpa of ethylene, which will then be processed into polyethylene grades that are in demand both domestically and globally. The main feedstock will be ethane fraction from Gazprom’s Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) currently under construction.
Basic configuration: Ethane
Advanced configuration: Ethane + LPG
Basic configuration: 8 bln USD;
Advanced configuration: 11 bln USD.
SIBUR has approved licensors for polymer plants at the Amur GCC. A contractor is yet to be selected. A licensor and a contractor for the pyrolysis plant will be identified by the end of 2019, as per the Chairman of SIBUR Management Board Dmitry Konov.
Dmitry Konov did not specify, however, that company became the licensor for polymer plants of the gas chemical complex.
A list of potential licensors includes American CB&I and KBR, French Technip, German Linde, as well as Chinese Sinopec.
