SIBUR hopes for the construction of the Blagoveshchensk-Haihe bridge for supplies from the Amur MCC

At present, SIBUR is exploring various options for supplying products from the future gas chemical complex (MCC) in the Amur Region, and considers the most optimal option is the supply via the bridge between Blagoveshchensk and the Chinese city of Heihe.

This was announced by Denis Solomatin, director for development and supply of raw materials at SIBUR, within the framework of a round table on the development of the gas transmission, processing and gas chemical industry in the Amur Region.

As D. Solomatin said, among the supply options is also considered transportation by rail through the Transbaikalia and a new bridge to China, which is planned to be built in the Jewish Autonomous Region, and in addition - sea deliveries through a terminal in the Vladivostok area.

"All these channels, although possible, are not optimal. Direct delivery suggests itself through Blagoveshchensk, through a combined road and rail bridge, which is much talked about. We hope that it will be built," said a SIBUR spokesman.

In addition, D. Solomatin noted in his speech that the company does not like the level of infrastructure of the city of Svobodny, in the area of ​​which the construction of the MCC is planned.

"Nobody wants to move to such conditions from other regions. The conditions must be improved, which is also beneficial for the residents of Svobodny. We hope that the administrations of the city, region and Skovorodinsky district will find opportunities to invest with us in the development of this city," to the head of the region D. Solomatin.

At the end of 2013, SIBUR and Gazprom (MOEX: GAZP) signed a memorandum of cooperation in the creation of a gas processing plant and a gas chemical complex in the Amur Region. In accordance with the document, the parties will unite their efforts within the framework of the proposed creation of a powerful complex for processing complex gas from the fields of the Yakutsk and Irkutsk gas production centers, the formation of which is being carried out by Gazprom as part of the Eastern Gas Program. The potential gas chemical complex is tentatively planned to produce 2,4 million tons of ethylene, as well as its derivatives.

According to the latest information, the construction of the Blagoveshchensk-Haihe bridge, the idea of ​​which was put forward at the end of the 1980-ies, is scheduled to begin in 2015.
