LONDON (ICIS)--Poland’s Zaklady Chemiczne Police (ZChP) has cut its ammonia production by 35% in response to reduced gas supplies implemented by gas monopoly PGNiG because of increased gas demand caused in the ongoing cold snap, ZChP said on Wednesday.

ZChP has been running both its 250,000 tonne/year ammonia installations since September last year.

The company was informed of the indefinite gas cut, which has also been applied to oil, chemicals and petrochemicals group PKN Orlen and nitrogen fertilizer, caprolactam (capro) and melamine producer Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy (ZAP), earlier on Wednesday by PGNiG.
