Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/3/2013, Location: North America

Technip was awarded by The Mosaic Company the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract, as well as preparation of the corresponding engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) proposal, for a new ammonia plant under consideration by the global crop nutrient company. Mosaic’s preference is to locate the proposed plant adjacent to the company’s existing Faustina fertilizer manufacturing operations in St. James Parish, Louisiana. It would have a capacity of 2,200 metric tons per day.

Mosaic is the world’s largest producer of finished phosphate products, with annual production capacity greater than the next two largest producers combined. The company’s plan is to backward integrate more fully into ammonia production by expanding its present capacity at Faustina. Ammonia is an essential ingredient in the manufacture of phosphate-based crop nutrients.

The proposed design of the plant would feature Haldor Tops?e’ proprietary ammonia process technology that Technip has successfully engineered and constructed in projects for more than 40 years. Technip will also perform the preliminary design work for the plant offsites, utilities, interconnections, and other supporting units for the facility. Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas will execute the FEED contract in collaboration with its engineering center in Rome, Italy. The development of the FEED and corresponding EPC proposal began in November 2012; both are targeted for completion by mid-2013.

David Dickson, Technip’s Senior Vice President, North America Region, stated: “Technip is delighted to have been awarded this contract together with our long-term, tier-one partner Haldor Tops?e. The proposed Mosaic ammonia facility would be one of the most modern and efficient in operation in the Americas. This award confirms once again the position of the team Haldor Tops?e/Technip as one of the recognized leaders in Ammonia Technology, as well as EPC services, in the U.S. and around the world.”
