Agrium announced today that its board of directors has given a green light to its brownfield expansion at Borger.
145,000 tons more ammonia will be produced, but marketable (net) ammonia output will drop by 133,000 tons – the rest will go into making 610,000 tons of urea / DEF at their new urea plant, due online by end 2015.

Borger went down on Thursday, the company (Agrium) says it was a faulty pipe and would be replaced within a week. I am not so sure, because the company has been late in reporting plant downtime before.
