CAMPINAS, Brazil (ICIS)--Brazil-based Petrobras expects that its ammonium sulphate project in Sergipe should start up by September 2013, the company’s president said on Wednesday.
“We have done big investments to expand our fertilizers facility in the state of Sergipe. We will start producing ammonium sulphate by September of 2013”, said Maria das Gracas Foster, Petrobras president.
She made her comments during an interview with the Brazil Communication Co (EBC).
She did not specify the capacity of the expanded facility.
However, earlier this year, Petrobras said in its annual report that the expansion would allow the Sergipe site to sell 303,000 tonnes/year of ammonium sulphate, up from 226,000 tonnes/year.
At the time, Petrobras expected to start up the project in May 2013.
