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.

The Project involves setting-up of a second train for the production of ammonia at the rate of 2,300 metric tonnes per day (MTPD) and granulated urea at the rate of 4,000 MTPD at Indorama’s existing petrochemicals complex. The second train will be constructed adjacent to the first train with a similar production capacity. The first train was commissioned in 2016. Natural gas will be used in a steam reformer to generate hydrogen which will then be combined with nitrogen from the air to manufacture ammonia. Ammonia will then be reacted with carbon dioxide from the steam reformer to manufacture granulated urea. Natural gas is currently being piped to the Indorama Petrochemicals Complex from nearby gas fields. The gas supply company will transport gas for the second train by adding another pipeline in the pipeline corridor in an existing right-of-way.
