Economics of coal-based urea plants: Find out why private promoters are warming up to the idea

Dec 14: While being near an LNG facility, this fertilizer company is planning to set up an innovative coal-based ammonia-urea unit, following the Chinese example. China produces the bulk of its fertilizers from coal, instead of gas.
8Clearly, fertilizer project promoters are increasingly enamored with the economics of using coal instead of natural gas as a feedstock. While demand-supply forces are expected to push the price of gas up, those of coal are expected to stay down. Coal-based urea units had failed in India earlier, but Chinese companies have now shown the way to stay viable. While it is this government that pushed through a public sector coal-based urea unit, the idea seems to have been picked up by the private sector.
8The risk in using coal, however, is the possibility of imposition of a high carbon tax, but the promoter's logic is that as long as coal-based power has to stay viable in India, a syn gas based fertilizer unit will also stay economical.
8Cost - Rs 7484 Crore
8Project Event: The internal discussion process is ongoing for a Process licensor and an EPC contractor. It will take a minimum two to three months for the release of RFQ,

International Fertilizer Update

Dec 12: US Fertilizer price analysis
Ammonia prices continued to increase, but at a slower rate than previous months due to the end of seasonal demand in India, which relieved upward pressure on prices.
8Urea prices showed a significant increase in the Black Sea due to supply restrictions in China. In contrast, prices decreased in the US Gulf due to delayed applications caused by unfavorable weather in the US.
8DAP prices have stabilized in response to rising input (nitrogen) prices in India (pushing prices upward), combined with a delayed application in the US due to bad weather conditions (pushing prices downward).
8Potash prices in North America remained unchanged m/m, reflecting the delayed fall application season in the US.
Natural gas prices spiked in November due to cold temperatures and low inventories in the US.

World supply-demand outlook
8Wheat production forecast lowered slightly, mostly on downward revisions in the Russian Federation and Turkey. ? Utilization in 2018/19 lowered marginally following a further downgrading of prospects for feed use of wheat.
8Maize production forecast down marginally m/m with lower anticipated harvests in the Russian Federation and the US more than offsetting a significant upward revision in Ukraine.
8Rice production in 2018 only fractionally changed m/m, as a reduction for Madagascar is largely outweighed by improved prospects for a few Latin American countries. ? Utilization forecast for 2018/19 trimmed, reflecting less buoyant use prospects for Brazil and African countries, namely Nigeria.
8Soybean 2018/19 production trimmed marginally, with reductions in the US and the Russian Federation only partially offset by higher forecasts for Argentina.

International Fertilizer Update

Dec 12: US Fertilizer price analysis
Ammonia prices continued to increase, but at a slower rate than previous months due to the end of seasonal demand in India, which relieved upward pressure on prices.
8Urea prices showed a significant increase in the Black Sea due to supply restrictions in China. In contrast, prices decreased in the US Gulf due to delayed applications caused by unfavorable weather in the US.
8DAP prices have stabilized in response to rising input (nitrogen) prices in India (pushing prices upward), combined with a delayed application in the US due to bad weather conditions (pushing prices downward).
8Potash prices in North America remained unchanged m/m, reflecting the delayed fall application season in the US.
Natural gas prices spiked in November due to cold temperatures and low inventories in the US.
