Sibur, Gazprom Neft & Titan Group sign JV on PP Plant
May '14
Gazprom Neft, SIBUR and Titan Group signed an agreement to establish a joint venture based on Omsk Polypropylene Plant (Poliom).
As part of the deal, Sibgazpolimer, a joint venture of SIBUR and Gazprom Neft (each having a 50% stake), acquired a 50% stake in Poliom from Titan Group.
Under the agreement, Gazprom Neft is to supply Poliom with raw materials (propane-propylene fraction from Omsk Refinery), with SIBUR to sell Poliom's products through its distribution network.
This partnership will help enhance the efficiency across the entire production chain, from feedstock delivery to sales.
Poliom's Board of Directors is to consist of an equal number of representatives of Titan Group and Sibgazpolimer, with the plant's operations handled by CEO. Currently, this position is held by Oleg Moloshtanov.
“The acquisition of Poliom's stake by Gazprom Neft will provide the plant with smooth feedstock supplies to manufacture high-quality petrochemicals, improve our refining efficiency and add value across all production stages,” said Anatoly Cherner, deputy CEO for logistics, processing and sales at Gazprom Neft.
“We are convinced that SIBUR's competencies in polypropylene production and solid understanding of the Russian polymer market will contribute to enhancing Poliom's operational excellence and performance,” Dmitry Konov, SIBUR’s CEO, said.
“Cutting-edge production facilities with a high level of environmental protection, advanced technologies, and highly qualified personnel enabled Omsk Polypropylene Plant to become a market leader within the very first year of operations. I believe that the majors' engagement in the project will help increase investor appeal of the Omsk Region and boost SME development, marking the growing point of various industrial sectors in Russia,” said Mikhail Sutyaginsky, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Titan Group.
