    As per KBR Press Release 12th March 2014, Agrium has awarded the company an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a new grassroots urea plant whose Site has not been announced. Presumably this could be the Agrium’s greenfield project in the Midwest which you have been showing as “Dead”. Kindly check and update current status of this project.

      Hi Ajay,

      I don’t think so – the dead greenfield plant remains dead for the time being.

      The new urea plant will be built at Agrium’s existing location in Borger, Texas. They are also doing an ammonia debottlenecking project there.

      Even though the Borger plant’s ammonia capacity is increasing, its net ammonia output is expected to decrease because so much more ammonia will now be upgraded to urea.

      Full information about the Borger project is over here.
