Mohsen Mahmoudi announced this, and pointed out that the project has been launched with the aim of producing 677,000 tons of ammonia, reported the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (PGPIC).

The urea and ammonia units of the plant are designed in three stages; the first stage is utility and is fully operational. The second phase is the production of ammonia, which is now in operation and is in the final stages of urea production with a capacity of about one million tons per year, which, God willing, will be operational next month, he said.
