Nigeria to Commence Fertilizer Export

Nigeria is set to become a major exporter of fertilizer in the first quarter of 2016 when Indorama’s brand new fertilizer plant begins production.

The Indorama fertilizer project is the world’s largest gas-based single stream urea plant being built in Eleme, Rivers State, by the Indorama Eleme Fertilizer and Chemicals Limited (IEFCL), a sister company of the Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Ltd. (IEPL).

The company disclosed in its in-house magazine, Impact, that several critical sections of the plant are going through various stages of commissioning and test-run leading to the plant’s inauguration in 90 days’ time.

Meanwhile, an 84km gas pipeline to supply the Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) feedstock and a port terminal at Onne Port Complex are also being completed to complement the fertilizer project.
