|Location||Damietta, some 200 kilometres east of Alexandria - EG|
|Scope||The Urea/Ammonia Fertilizers Project aims to produce Ammonia and Urea fertilizer with a capacity of 1,200 t/day of Anhydrous Ammonia and 1,925 t/day of Granular Urea. A gas feedstock agreement for the project was concluded with Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS). The ammonia plant was to be based on Uhde’s proprietary ammonia process while the urea plant uses Netherlands-based Stamicarbon’s synthesis technology.
MOPCO wanted to use the urea fertilizer produced to serve both the domestic and export markets. The combined entity intends to construct two additional urea trains on the MOPCO site. Agrium had a small (26 percent) equity position in the facility.
