      During the N&S 2012 in Athens in Feb 2012 the following information was presented by Saipem/Engro:

      Qafco 5 started up on Feb 16, 2012 with a design capacity of 3850 mtpd urea, which would be the largest urea plant in the world when looking at design plant capacity.

      Engro realised following performance:
      max daily production: 3636 mtpd
      First urea has been produced 44 months and 25 days after effective date, steam blowing started in the 32nd month after effective date.
      Energy index including all imports: 24.3 MMBTU/mt urea
      PT height: 125 m

          My information about this plant is following:

          In 2006 it produced 1,280,718 metric tons urea in a full year of operation, achieving in 360 days of operation an average daily production of 3558 mtpd, with a maximum peak of 3700 mtpd.

          Further they are considering a debottlenecking scheme to higher capacities, but this has not yet been implemented as afar as I know.

          Who knows more ?

              Let’s separate some categories like:
              Largest daily capacity and Largest yearly capacity

              Any interest to keep track on lowest energy consumption ?

                Engro Fertilizers Limited has been operating Single stream Urea plant with a capacity of 3835 MeT/d since Dec-2010. They have demonstrated 3700 MeT/D Urea production. So I believe this is the biggest now…

                  Hello Fahad

                  Qafco 4 design capacity is 3.200MT/d and It’s among the largest urea plants in the world.

                  In 2010 there were a paper published by Mark Brouwer on Nitrogen+syngas magazine (Nov-Dec, n308) called “World Scale Urea Plants”. That article mentioned that Profertil in Argentina produced in 2006 1.280.718 tons.

                  Qafco 4 crossed that figures by producing 1.284.757 ton in 2011.
                  So far, I don’t have updated information about the production achieved in 2011 by others plants.

                  Best regards
                  Cristiano
