The Russian oil producer Lukoil is designing a polypropylene plant with the capacity up to 500,000 tonnes of processed feedstock per year at the refinery it owns in Kstovo, the Nizhniy Novgorod Region.“The plant construction can be initiated after design completion and the final investment decision taking on the project,” Lukoil representative said. Propylene from two operating catalytic crackers in the Kstovo Refinery, whose capacity will be expanded during the upgrade, will serve as the feedstock for the polypropylene plant. “The future plant can become the largest petrochemical facility in Russia, integrated with refining processes within the framework of a single production site,” added the company.
