Company advantages

SIBUR’s business model takes advantage of synergies between raw materials and other types of capital to produce polymers and other petrochemical products that are used in most sectors of the economy.

Our key strengths:

  • Low costs and reliable access to raw materials
  • Financial resilience
  • Focus on fast-growing petrochemical markets
  • High-potential investment projects

Key production processes

1. Gas processing

Associated petroleum gas (APG) — it is a by-product of hydrocarbon extraction and processing.

SIBUR facilities separate APG into dry stripped gas, stable natural gasoline (SNG), and natural gas liquids (NGL). These components then undergo further processing:

  • Dry stripped gas is used as a feedstock by chemical companies, as well as a fuel for electricity generation or for utility and industrial needs
  • SNG is used as a petrochemical feedstock, at organic synthesis plants, and for motor fuel production
  • NGL is used as a petrochemical feedstock for plastics, rubbers, and other products

NGLs are separated into individual hydrocarbons — methane, ethane, propane and butane, and their mixtures

They serve as feedstocks for ethylene and propylene production, in home heating, or as an eco-friendly gas engine fuel.

3. Pyrolysis

Ethane, propane and butane

are exposed to high temperatures in a low-pressure environment, which transforms them into substances with new properties called monomers (ethylene, propylene, etc.).

These hydrocarbons then become feedstocks for various polymer compounds.

4. Polymerisation

As a result of complex chemical reactions

monomers convert to polymers, which include polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and others.

These basic polymers are used by manufacturers of packaging, hot and cold water piping, construction and decorative materials, medical and household goods, automobile parts, etc

5. Polymer production from secondary materials

One of our key goals is incorporating recycled plastics in production to make environmentally friendly and easily recyclable polymers.

Under our Vivilen brand we do just that, putting out sustainable materials that are used in manufacturing containers, packaging, FMCG products and industrial goods.
