yara international asa (YAR) Key Developments

Yara International ASA and BASF Begin Building Ammonia Plant in Freeport, Texas

Yara International ASA and BASF broke ground on July 27, 2015 on ammonia plant at the BASF site in Freeport, Texas. Total capital investment for the plant - which is expected to come online in 2017 - is estimated at $600 million. As part of the project, Yara will build an ammonia tank at the BASF terminal and BASF will upgrade its current terminal and pipeline assets for the export of ammonia from the new plant. The plant will have a capacity of about 750,000 metric tons per year and will be owned 68% by Yara and 32% by BASF. Each party will off-take ammonia from the plant in accordance with its equity share. BASF will use its share of ammonia from the plant to produce caprolactam, a key ingredient in the manufacture of nylons for carpet, textiles, film, monofilaments, and wire and cable. Yara will market the remainder mostly to industrial customers in North America, in addition to supplying the agricultural sector. The hydrogen based process that will be used in the new plant significantly reduces capital expenditures and maintenance compared to a traditional natural gas based ammonia plant. A long-term supply agreement for nitrogen and hydrogen has been signed with Praxair Inc. linking the feedstock variable cost to the advantageous natural gas prices available at the U.S. Gulf coast.

Yara Expands Production Capacity in Sluiskil, Netherlands

Yara is investing USD 263 million in Sluiskil, Netherlands to increase granulation capacity enabling increased production of granular urea with sulphur, and nitrates. With this investment, the Drilling unit will be replaced by a new urea granulator also designed for production of urea with sulphur, a product that is sold with a premium to regular urea. The new granulator will have an annual capacity of 660,000 tons of urea with sulphur. In parallel with increasing urea production, Sluiskil will reduce UAN production by around 230,000 tons per annum, freeing up nitric acid capacity enabling 130,000 tons per annum of additional CAN production. The new plant will be based on technology developed by Yara. Construction will start in 2015, with completion expected in second half 2017.
