SIBUR expects to launch Amur GCC in 2025-26, change configuration and suppliers

VLADIVOSTOK. Sept 6 (Interfax) - SIBUR in 2025-2026 expects to launch the Amur Gas Chemical Complex that will refine liquid hydrocarbons from the Amur Gas Processing Plant, changing the configuration of technology and suppliers, the petrochemical holding's CEO Mikhail Karisalov said during the Eastern Economic Forum 2022.

"According to the information that we have from Gazprom , the Amur GPP has more than 80% progress, respectively, and we are in the wake of the project [to implement construction of the Amur GCC]. We will accept more than 3.5 million tonnes of liquid hydrocarbon feedstock for processing in 2025-2026. We expect that we will be able to reconfigure the processing technology on site despite the current situation, taking into account the sanctions of a number of licensors and equipment suppliers. We will be able to launch the plant and become Gazprom's reliable partner in this general line as well," Karisalov said.
