MOSCOW, May 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian petrochemicals company Sibur and China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) have signed an agreement on establishing a joint venture to produce synthetic rubbers, Sibur said in a statement on Tuesday.

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.
