Azerbaijan Petrochemicals Report Q1 2016

BMI View: Azerbaijan's petrochemicals industry will be boosted in 2016 with the opening of two new polymer plants,but they will be entering the market at a time of economic downturn for the country. Falling oil output andlow crude prices are weighing heavily on domestic consumption, while external markets are not faring welleither. However, there is optimism that long-term ambitions will help leverage the country's upstreamresources to create a strong export-orientated petrochemicals industry from 2020.

The planned SOCAR Polimer polypropylene (PP) plant, with 200,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) capacity, atthe Sumgayit Chemical Technology Park in Azerbaijan is scheduled to start production in H216. A100,000tpa PE, the plant is also likely to come on stream at the same time. Beyond that, attention will shiftto the massive world-class USD17bn Oil and Gas Processing and Petrochemical Complex (OGPC), whichwill improve efficiency and provide a wider range of higher value refined products.
