Nutrien announces changes at Trinidad ammonia facility

Published: Sep 22, 2020

Nutrien has announced changes that will see the indefinite closure of one of our four ammonia plants in Trinidad. This suspension of operations is in response to market conditions and lower global prices for ammonia. 

Two of our Ammonia plants and the associated urea facility will continue to operate at maximum capacity. Our other plant which was taken offline in May 2020 due to market conditions is expected to come back online as market conditions improve. The urea plant at the site will continue operating at normal rate.

Market conditions have pressed the need for the closure of the plant, which will result in a 15% reduction in the workforce effective October 30, 2020.
These changes will enable the facility to operate more efficiently, competitively and sustainably into the future.

Ensuring our customers are serviced is always a top priority. We are optimizing to ensure we support our customers and there are no changes to existing supplier contractual agreements.
