Incitec Pivot Ltd. (IPL) has announced that it has been unable to secure an economically viable long-term gas supply to its Gibson Island (GI) plant in Australia beyond its current contract.

As a result, IPL will cease manufacturing operations at the site at the end of the current natural gas feedstock supply arrangements which expire at the end of December 2022.

Despite this decision to cease manufacturing with natural gas at the end of 2022, the feasibility study into industrial-scale production of green ammonia at GI will be progressed to potentially re-purpose the facility.

Urea, sulfate of ammonia and other specialty products will be sourced from IPL’s existing international import supply chains to replace these manufactured products.

IPL’s Brisbane fertilizer distribution centre operation will continue beyond the closure of the manufacturing operations.
