Koch Fertilizer Evaluating Enid Urea Project
ENID, Okla.—Koch Fertilizer is pleased to announce it is evaluating a construction project to increase urea production at its plant in Enid, Oklahoma.
Today, the company submitted a construction air permit application to increase ammonia upgrade capabilities due to changes in the distribution system and to better serve the growing demand for upgraded nitrogen products.
The proposed project will allow Koch Fertilizer Enid to supply up to 1.8 million tons of urea annually.
“Our customers continue to increase consumption of upgraded products, like urea and enhanced efficiency fertilizers,” said Scott McGinn, Koch Fertilizer executive vice president. “We are committed to serving our customers, and this investment will enhance our ability to provide them with the nitrogen products they need by adding additional production flexibility at the Enid plant. Koch Fertilizer made a significant investment in the plant a few years ago, and we’re excited about the possibility to further expand our Enid operations through this new project.”
Currently, Koch Fertilizer is in the project engineering phase. Construction on the proposed project is anticipated to begin at the end of 2020, with startup occurring in 2022.
