Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.
In 2013 IFC provided Indorama with a $225 million A/B loan to support development of a new urea-based fertilizer plant within the confines of Eleme's existing 360 hectare site located west of central Port Harcourt. Current operations on this site include an olefins plant, a polyethylene plant, polypropylene plant, two nitrogen plants, four natural gas turbines and three steam turbines. The fertilizer plant is to be commissioned in April 2016 and includes an ammonia plant, urea plant and urea granulation plant that will produce 4,000 tons of granulated urea per day. In addition, a jetty is being constructed in the nearby Onne port for the export of fertilizer; this will be commissioned at the same time as the fertilizer plant. A new gas pipeline was commissioned for the new fertilizer plant as of February 2016, and is ready for operations. As part of IFC's investment in the fertilizer plant a detailed environmental and social (E&S) due diligence was undertaken of the plant, the jetty and gas pipeline; the latter two activities were included in the due diligence given they were considered associated facilities relative to the plant.
