SIBUR's Tobolsk-Polymer uses world leading technologies to produce propylene and polypropylene by leveraging its propane feedstock, energy resources, advantaged production costs and the sharing of available infrastructure at its Tobolsk-Neftekhim production site to generate attractive economic and financial returns to the stakeholders.
Program and project management services were required for planning the complex configuration, licensor selection, technology package preparation, FEED contractor selection, FEED and EPC stages.
The site is in a remote Western Siberian area on the river Irtysh, which is inaccessible for 10 months a year. The main logistic routes are rail and, to a lesser extent, roads. Weather conditions include severe cold and polar conditions, although summers can be very warm.
