In addition to core products, the complex under construction will produce a wide fraction of hydrocarbons and methane fraction. It is planned to use the gas produced at the Urengoy gas field as raw material for the production of ethylene and polyethylene.
The project is developed based on foreign cutting-edge technologies and will combine the ethylene production from blends of hydrocarbon gas and the subsequent production of low density polyethylene in a single technological chain. VIS Group is the General Contractor for the construction and putting the complex into operation.
The first stage includes construction of priority infrastructure facilities needed to support the site.
