Qatar Petroleum Corporation (Doha, Qatar) and Norsk Hydro ASA (Oslo, Norway)have approved construction of the USD 535 million Urea Unit and awarded Krupp Uhde (Dortmund, Germany) the contract to construct a massive urea unit in Messaieed, Qatar called “Qafco IV”. When completed, the new unit will produce 3200 tons per day of urea and 2000 tons per day of ammonia. These capacity expansions will make Qafco the world’s largest fertiliser complex. Krupp Uhde expects to commence construction in October of 2001 with completion scheduled for the second half of 2004.
