Agrium Inc. has announced that it successfully completed construction of the urea plant at its nitrogen facility in Borger, Texas, within the previously disclosed revised time line and cost parameters.
Commissioning of the new 610 000 t urea facility, of which 100 000 t of urea t equivalent will be Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), is underway and production is expected to commence in 1Q17. DEF is used to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in diesel vehicles and this product will help further diversify Agrium's end-markets.
"Achieving this critical milestone in our Borger nitrogen expansion project, on-time and on-budget, is another example of our commitment to operational excellence at Agrium. The project creates shareholder value by refreshing the asset to ensure its future longevity, provides improved supply chain integration as well as product diversification and availability in this important agricultural region," commented Agrium's President and CEO, Chuck Magro.
