Mitsubishi, Notore to develop ammonia-urea facility in Nigeria

LAGOS, NIGERIA: Notore Chemical Industries Ltd has signed a joint venture agreement with Mitsubishi Corporation to develop ammonia, urea and other petrochemicals plant at its existing facility at Onne, Rivers State, Nigeria. The project will involve the construction of an integrated plant complex with production capacities of 1,700 metric tonne per day (MT/day) of ammonia, 3,000 MT/day of urea and 1,500 MT/day of other petrochemicals.

An agreement was also signed with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan to carry out the pre-FEED (front-end engineering design) for the project. It is expected that early works, (including FEED) should be concluded in the first quarter of 2013. The early works phase will be followed by 36 months of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC). The new plant, owing to its advantage of being built on a ‘brown-field’ site with existing gas facilities and other infrastructure, is expected to come on-stream by 2016.
