Construction of an integrated petrochemical complex
in Atyrau region
(first phase - production of polypropylene)
- The first project in the Republic of Kazakhstan for the processing of raw materials from the Tengiz field.
- Production capacity of 500 thousand tons of polypropylene per year.
− About 1% of the global production of polypropylene.
− 26.3% of the total production of polypropylene in the Russian Federation.
- More than the total production of polypropylene in the territory of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.
- Raw material: propane from the Tengiz field, purified from harmful impurities, which minimizes the impact on the environment.
- Technologies used: Catofin (propane dehydrogenation) and Novolen (propylene polymerization) technologies from Lummus Technology Inc. (USA).
- Similar complexes have been built in 5 countries of the world (Saudi Arabia, USA, Belgium, South Korea and China).
- 77% of the equipment is produced by manufacturers in Europe, the USA, South Korea, Japan and India.
for the construction period (temporary) - more than 4,300;
for the period of operation (permanent) - 1,100.
General Contractor: China National Chemical Engineering Co. (CNCEC, China).
The effect of the project implementation:
− Covering the internal needs of Kazakhstan (import substitution) in polypropylene (the market capacity of Kazakhstan is about 50 thousand tons per year).
− Opportunity for SMEs to produce products from polypropylene for further processing in the sectors of construction, medicine, automotive, food industry, textile industry, etc.
− Creation of additional jobs in SMEs and related industries.
− The contribution to the country’s GDP will be up to 1%.
· The overall progress of the project implementation is 99.74%.
· Construction and installation work has been completed, off-site facilities, a propane drain rack and a propane storage park have been put into operation. Commissioning works are underway.
· Completion of commissioning with the production of the first batch of polypropylene is planned for november this year.
