Welcome To CONSER S.p.A. ...



PJSC Tatneft, one of Russia’s largest oil and petrochemicals producers, has announced plans to establish a new EUR 1.5 billion integrated chemicals and composites production cluster in the Tatarstan Republic, reports Eugene Gerden.

The new AlmA cluster will be established within the Almetyevsk Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and span the production of maleic anhydride (MAN), polypropylene, acrylonitrile, carbon fibres and composites.

According to Tatneft spokesman Siren Sakhapov, the production of maleic anhydride is particularly important as the basis for binder resins and production will be established with the world’s first three-reactor propane dehydrogenation system.

Future composites output will be supplied for the needs of various domestic industries, primarily wind generation and shipbuilding, as well as materials for the MS-21 medium-range aircraft, which has suffered from trade embargoes on the carbon composites it has in the past acquired from overseas suppliers.

The Italian technologies Licensor CONSER has been awarded the maleic anhydride (MAN) contract for the capacity of 50 ktons/year by TATNEFT in 2018.

Tatneft stresses that output from the new cluster will comply with all existing international standards and environmentally conscious technologies will be installed, including those from Italy’s Conser, with the emphasis on reliability, energy efficiency and the absence of emissions into the atmosphere and water.

The Tatarstan government has already promised to provide all necessary support for the implementation of the project and the new cluster is scheduled to be officially commissioned by 2025.

SIBUR has launched the construction of a maleic anhydride (MAN) production facility at SIBUR Tobolsk.

With a planned capacity is 45 ktpa, the facility is scheduled to go online in 2021, bringing new high-tech jobs to the market.

MAN is currently not produced in Russia and domestic demand is covered by imports. Launching the high-margin MAN will enable SIBUR to monetise its own feedstock (butane), improve the hydrocarbon processing rate in Russia, fully substitute MAN imports, and start MAN exports to Western and Eastern Europe and Turkey. In addition, a state-of-the-art Russian MAN production facility will provide new development opportunities for many domestic industries. As part of the Tobolsk production site, the new facility will enjoy ease of access to its infrastructure and feedstock flows, gaining more competitive power.

MAN Project Manager Vladimir Mishin commented: “We chose CONSER as the licensor for the project thanks to its cutting-edge MAN production technology. State-of-the-art technology and unique equipment prevent negative impact on the environment. The secured approval of the design documents by the state expert review board and the results of the public discussions confirm that the project fully complies with environmental laws and regulations.”

SIBUR has engaged NIPIgaspererabotka, a leading Russian centre for facility design, supply, logistics and construction, to develop the project engineering solutions. Russian contractors, including those based in the Tyumen Region, will be selected for construction and installation.
