AKIPRESS.COM - Uz-Kor Gas Chemical has resumed polymers production in Uzbekistan following a turnaround, according to the ICIS-MRC Price Report.

The company is a joint venture established by the National Holding Company Uzbekneftegaz and an investment consortium of Korean companies Kogaz, Lotte Group and STX Energy.

The plant's customers said Uz-Kor Gas Chemical began to gradually resume work on 1 November after the scheduled maintenance at its high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) production capacities.

One of two reactors for HDPE production was launched in the morning of 2 November.

The outage started in early October and should have been completed by 27 October. Due to technical problems, however, it was extended by almost a week.

Uz-Kor Gas Chemical was founded on the basis of Ustyurt Gas Chemical Complex (Surgil deposit). The total cost of the project is over $4bn.

The complex provides processing of 4.5bn cubic metres (cbm) of natural gas and includes HDPE and PP production facilities with an annual capacity of 386,000 and 80,000 tonnes, respectively.
