      Hi Don, there’s no latest status … as I understand it, this project is in a holding pattern, awaiting market clarity when other projects either move forward or fall away (eg, Midwest Fertilizer Co).

      There’s never been a website – I guess they don’t see the need for one until the project is confirmed.
