Yara closes ammonia plant in Trinidad
Nov. 15, 2019
The Trinidad plant is one of Yara's smallest ammonia plants, with an annual production capacity of approximately 270 000 t of ammonia. In addition to small scale, the plant has a lower energy efficiency than Yara's average. Plant profitability has also been impacted by lower ammonia prices, and in addition negotiations with The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC) have failed to reach an agreement that could sustain plant operations. As a result, steps will be taken to safely shut down the plant and cease production of ammonia by 31 December 2019.
