On the 20th of August 2016 Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov visited Isoprene Monomer Plant and Oligomers facilities at PJSC «Nizhnekamskneftekhim».
Isoprene monomer plant is implementing a set of measures to modernize the production of isobutylene as a part of PJSC «Nizhnekamskneftekhim» efficiency improvement program. Isobutylene is a primary raw material to produce isoprene. The industrial production of isoprene from isobutylene is more cost-effective compared to the production of isoprene from isopentane.
At the Oligomers Plant Rustam Minnikhanov took part in the ceremonial startup of the modernized alpha-olefins production facilities.
The decision to revamp the Linear Alpha-olefins production facilities (LAO) in accordance with alpha-Sablin technology was taken in 2012. The reconstruction is aimed at developing new efficient production with high yield of light ends while minimizing raw-materials consumption – i.e. the consumption of ethylene - providing at the same time import substitution of С4 and С6 olefin fractions used as co-monomers in the polyethylene production. It should be mentioned that all that provides a higher processing level of hydrocarbons and helps to reduce the environmental footprint.
The unit is equipped with state-of-the art control and emergency shut-down systems. During readiness inspections at all start-up phases the Licensor has confirmed that all the facilities comply with the requirements.
August 31, 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of signing the act of the State Commission for commissioning of ethylene plant of PJSC «Nizhnekamskneftekhim».
The plant was built in record time: it took only 14 months to install the main equipment. The joint decision of the CPSU Central Committee and the USSR Council of Ministers was taken on December 03, 1970 about construction of the new complex for production of ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene and other related products. In the 1973-1974 a large-scale construction was started, and the first commercial ethylene was produced on June 21, 1976 already.
As a result of reconstruction and revamping activities over the past decades, the ethylene plant capacity was brought up to today's 600 thousand tons per year. Totally, more than 16 million tons of ethylene, about 8 million tons of propylene, more than 2 million tons of butadiene and more than 6 million tons of benzene were produced since the plant was into operation.
Ethylene plant is the main raw material supplier for the majority of Nizhnekamskneftekhim production facilities. Its products are also sent for further processing to the petrochemical facilities of Tatarstan and Bashkortostan and for export.
Propylene purification unit was put in operation at the polypropylene production facility at the plastics plant of PJSC «Nizhnekamskneftekhim».
This unit is designed to remove the catalytic poisons such as traces of moisture and methanol from the feedstock that is polymerized into polypropylene.
Currently, every month some 20 grades of three types of polypropylene are produced at the plastics plant (homo-, randomized and block copolymers).
Previously, similar equipment for ethylene purification was commissioned at the polyethylene facility of the plastics plant.
