Busy week for Midwest Fertilizer

A flurry of press releases regarding Midwest Fertilizer / Fatima Group’s Mt Vernon greenfield. Contracts to KBR for a 2,200 ton per day ammonia plant, and Jacobs Engineering Group for project management. New details released: confirming my original guess of project scale, at 800,000 tons per year; construction to begin Nov ’14, take three years. I assume delays, so start-up 2018. I still think this project is “possible” – but I won’t call it “likely” until they break ground. KBR booked the contract value (undisclosed) into its backlog for 4Q2013.

    There has been no further update regarding the implementation status of Midwest Fertilizer’s greenfield project at Mt Vernon. It is not clear whether engineering, procurement and preliminary work at project Site has commenced. Please update.
