AlexFert gears up for Abu Qir expansion

20 October 2006
Alexandria Fertilisers Company (AlexFert) is developing plans for a major expansion of its urea/ammonia plant at Abu Qir. The $600 million expansion, subject to the finalisation of a feedstock agreement with Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), will add 2,000 tonnes a day (t/d) of ammonia and 3,300 t/d of granulated urea at the site by 2010.
AlexFert will carry out the project in joint venture with Japan's Mitsui & Company. Italy's Snamprogetti is

the licensor for the urea technology and Denmark's Haldor Topsoe as the ammonia licensor (MEED 9:1:04).
