HOUSTON (ICIS)--LSB Industries has completed a month-long project to increase anhydrous ammonia production at its Pryor plant in Oklahoma by up to 40%, the producer said on Monday.
The plant was permitted to produce as much 700 tons/day, but flow restrictions caused it to produce no more than 500 tons/day, LSB said.
“The primary purpose of the improvement project was to correct those restrictions,” LSB said.
The plant was shut down from 3 January to 3 February while the improvement project took place.
Production lost during the project “should be more than offset during the balance of 2012,” LSB said.
