Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. produces nitrogen fertilizer products. The company conducts its operations through an operating partnership, Terra Nitrogen, Limited Partnership (TNLP or the operating partnership, and collectively with TNCLP, the partnership). Terra Nitrogen GP Inc. (TNGP or the general partner), a Delaware corporation, is the general partner of both TNCLP and TNLP and owns a consolidated 0.05 percent general partner interest in the partnership. The company’s principal products include anhydrous ammonia (ammonia) and urea ammonium nitrate solutions (UAN), which it manufacture at its facility in Verdigris, Oklahoma. Its nitrogen products are used primarily by farmers to improve the yield and quality of their crops. Seasonality The strongest demand for the company’s products occurs during the spring planting season, with a second period of strong demand following the fall harvest. Wholesale buyers generally build inventories during the low demand periods of the year to ensure timely product availability during the peak sales seasons. Seasonality is greatest for ammonia due to the short application season and the limited ability of the company’s customers and their customers to store significant quantities of this product. Customers The company sells all of the fertilizer products that it produces to an affiliate of the General Partner, making it the company’s only customer. Environmental and Other Regulatory Matters The company is subject to various environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, including laws and regulations relating to land reclamation; the generation, treatment, storage, disposal and handling of hazardous substances and wastes; and the cleanup of hazardous substance releases. These laws include the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act and various other federal, state and local statutes. The company is subject to greenhouse gas regulations. History Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. was founded in 1991.
