The need for specialists at the enterprise by 2026 will be about 700 people, Alexander Vagner, director of the FEFU Polytechnic Institute, told Then24.

Training will be conducted within the framework of the undergraduate program “Technologies of chemical and oil refining industries”.

“This program is about modern chemical technologies, about oil and gas processing, about the production of polymers. The partner of this program, which should become the anchor for the university, is Sibur. A comprehensive program for training a large number of specialists, since the need for 2026 is about 700 people at the main complex and auxiliary production facilities,” the source said.

According to him, the enterprise, the project of which will be implemented in the Amur Region, is designed to become a world leader in the production of polymers. “This is a mega-project. Not just the most modern chemical plant in Russia, it will be visible on a global scale,” Wagner added.

In addition, the FEFU Polytechnic Institute in 2022, together with Sibur, is opening a new master’s program in Chemical Engineering. The program is designed to train specialists capable of ensuring the operation of chemical and technological industries and environmental safety in the field of oil and gas processing and other types of raw materials, accompanied by mass and heat transfer processes and chemical reactions.

Fulfilling the order of the President of the Russian Federation to increase the availability of education in the Far East, FEFU increases the number of budget places. In the 2022-2023 academic year, more than 5,000 students will enroll in bachelor’s, specialist’s and master’s programs free of charge.

About the complex

The Amur Gas Chemical Complex is a joint venture between Sibur (60%) and China’s Sinopec (40%) for the production of polyethylene and polypropylene. The production capacity of the complex will be up to 2.7 million tons of polymers per year. The project budget is about $10 billion, and its launch is scheduled for mid-2024. The main raw materials for processing – ethane and liquefied hydrocarbon gas – will be supplied by Gazprom’s Amur gas processing plant, which is being built in the Svobodnensky district of the Amur region.
