OSLO, NORWAY: Record high natural gas prices in Europe are impacting ammonia production margins, and as a result Yara is curtailing production at a number of its plants. Including optimization of on-going maintenance, Yara will by next week have curtailed around 40 percent of its European ammonia production capacity.

Yara will continue to monitor the situation, with the objective to keep supplying customers but curtailing production where necessary, it said.
