The joint venture, in which Sinopec will hold 74.9% and Sibur 25.1%, will be established to build a butadiene nitrile rubber plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park some 50 km (30 miles) south of Shanghai with an annual capacity of 50,000 tons.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
