The proposed fertilizer production facilities are expected to be the single largest private sector investment in the Niger Delta.
The project will be carried out in two phases; phase 1 includes construction of a plant with a capacity to produce 1.3 million metric tonnes of urea and 1.75 million metric tonnes of methanol per year.
Work on phase 2, which will add an additional capacity of 1.3 million metric tonnes of urea, will commence five years after the phase 1 unit starts production.
