TOKYO, JAPAN:  Toyo Engineering Corporation, in cooperation with SOG - Oleo e Gas SA, a leading engineering company in Brazil, has been awarded a contract from Petrobras, a Brazilian state-run oil company. The contract involves construction of a new ammonia plant (UFN-5) with a production capacity of 1,500 tonne per day to be installed at Uberaba, Minas Gerais State in southeastern Brazil. The project scope covers licensing, engineering, procurement of equipment and materials, installation, commissioning and operation assistance. The plant is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2017.

Although the production of natural gas as feedstock in Brazil is increasing recently, the country imports most of the fertilizer it consumes. Therefore, producing fertilizer domestically is regarded as an important task for the nation.
