Trends in Russian Sulphur Production

Over the last two years sulphur production in Russia has been declining after a period of some stability in 2010-2012. Early 2015 does not fill us with optimism, and we may assume that total output in 2015 will decrease as compared to the previous year. This is exclusively due to the state of the gas industry which produces the lion’s share of sulphur in the country. Our article presents the whole structure of Russian gaseous sulphur manufacture, characterizes basic producers of this chemical - subsidiaries of Gazprom as well as minor players in the metallurgical and refinery industries. Besides these, we pay a particular attention to logistics issues, describe the main Russian consumers of sulphur and introduce to innovative developments in the field of using excessive sulphur volumes – a problem that Russia may face in case of the improvement of the economic situation.
