GUANGZHOU (ICIS news)--China’s Jianfeng Chemical plans to shut its fertilizer plant in south western Chongqing municipality from 1 January to 11 March 2010 for maintenance, the company said in a statement to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

The fertilizer plant includes a 300,000 tonne/year synthetic ammonia unit and a 520,000 tonne/year urea unit, the company added.

The firm had completed construction of its second fertilizer plant, which consists of a 450,000 tonne/year synthetic ammonia unit and an 800,000 tonne/year urea unit, at the same site, the statement said.

A company source said the new plant was expected to start operation before June 2010.

All the plants use natural gas as feedstock, the source said, adding that PetroChina supplies gas to the existing plant while the new plants would source gas from Sinopec’s Puguang gas field.
