The completion of the financing will trigger the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract awarded in November 2002 to Germany’s Uhde. The plant will produce 3,500 tonnes a day (t/d) of urea and 2,000 t/d of ammonia. SIUCI, which is wholly-owned by the local Suhail Bahwan Group, has an offtake agreement in place with Transammoniaof the US for the plant’s entire urea output (MEED 6:12:02; 19:4:02).
