Novak also said that petrochemical holding Sibur plans to build a 500 billion ruble Amur gas chemical facility near the gas refinery for further processing of ethane and production of ethylene and polypropylene.

Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said that Gazprom and Sibur plan to sign a contract to supply ethane from the refinery to the gas chemical facility by September.
