Now Available: Kazakhstan & Uzbekistan Petrochemicals Report 2016

While Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are set to open new petrochemicals facilities, there are strong downside risks associated with depressed export markets, uncompetitive feedstock prices and sluggish domestic demand. Investment decisions are being postponed and plant construction is being delayed due to ongoing problems facing the Central Asian economies.

In 2015, Central Asia's petrochemicals capacities include 240,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) ethylene, 125,000tpa polyethylene (PE) and 120,000tpa polypropylene (PP). The size of the industry was far less than the size of just one world-scale petrochemicals complex in the Middle East, yet Central Asia is only just leveraging its significant potential in terms of feedstock due to massive upstream resources.

Uzbekistan should begin commercial operations in 2016 at an ethane cracker with capacity to produce 400,000tpa of ethylene as well as downstream units with capacity for 400,000tpa HDPE and 100,000tpa PP.

Kazakhstan is set to see the completed construction of a major petrochemicals complex in the Atyrau region that is designed to produce polypropylene (PP) from 2016. The first two stages of the complex will create a 500,000tpa propylene capacity as well as a 800,000tpa PP facility. A third complex stage, planned for 2016, is set to produce butadiene using feedstock from two other major Kazakh oil fields, Karachaganak in the country's north west and Kashagan field in the Caspian Sea. However, with delays in start-up at Kashagan, the third stage may not be completed until 2018.

By 2020, Central Asia will be producing at capacities including 1.48mn tpa ethylene, with polymers production consisting of 1.33mn tpa PE, 1.02mn tpa PP and 100,000tpa polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
