Russian Methanol Market first half of 2020 Presentation

Russian Methanol Market 2020-to be published in October 2020

Introduction to Russian Methanol Report 2019-2025, publication date 1 October 2020

Russia accounts for about 5% of global methanol production and is an important source of exports in the international marketplace.  Prior to the spread of COVID-19 and its economic repercussions a number of large-scale methanol projects were planned for Russia which would have a significant impact on the country’s export capability significantly.  Projects already in process such as the 500,000 tpa plants under construction at Shchekinoazot and Nizhnekamskneftekhim may see minor delays, but the deep-sea projects particularly in the north west of Russia may be subject to re-evaluation, potentially lengthy delays and possible cancellation.  

This report starts with detailed analysis of the current Russian methanol market in regard to production, exports and domestic sales.  Each plant is examined to show where production is sent or used internally.  Export destinations are shown for Russian methanol by volume and value, whilst the complications and technicalities concerning logistics, ports and railways are outlined.  Finally each outstanding project is analysed with prospects for construction and completion before providing scenarios for Russian methanol capacity up to 2025.

Subscription to this report includes twelve months access to CIREC data on methanol, consisting of monthly updates for production, domestic sales and exports with export destinations.
