Vnesheconombank and SIBUR sign credit agreement for construction

Vnesheconombank, the Russian state-run bank, has opened a $153m credit line for Tobolsk-Polymer LLC, a subsidiary of SIBUR Holding, Russia’s largest petrochemical company.

This facility is Vnesheconombank’s first tranche of its financing of the project.

The agreement to open a credit line was signed by Vladimir Dmitriev, Chairman of Vnesheconombank, and Dmitry Konov, President of SIBUR during the 8th International Investment Forum «Sochi-2009».

The funds will be used to finance the construction of a polypropylene production complex in Tobolsk (Tyumen region) with an annual capacity of 500 thousand tonnes.

Major equipment for the new plant will be delivered at the construction site during 2010-2011. The end of construction and the start of pre-commissioning work are expected in the Q2 of 2012. 

The construction of the polypropylene complex, proposed by SIBUR, is part of the «Strategy for the Development of the Chemical and Petrochemical Industry in Russia for the period up to 2015.»

The project is focused on improving the efficiency of Russia’s natural resources, ecology and environmental protection. It will also provide a boost to industries such as housing and communal services, as well as car manufacturing.

Dmitry Konov, President of SIBUR said: «We welcome the state bank’s credit funding and government’s support. The new complex will be among the largest petrochemical plants built in Russia over the last few decades. It will offer a comprehensive solution to such challenges as advanced processing of hydrocarbon resources and the technological modernisation of Russian industry».
