The proposed new facility in Louisiana would produce 750,000 tonnes of ammonia per year, of which an estimated 35-50% would be exported through the Port of New Orleans.
A spokesman for the Melbourne-headquartered firm said the plant would take around two years to build and so would not commence production until 2016 at the earliest.
He added a feasibility study into the major project will end in the next few months and the company expects to make a final decision on the project by the end of June.
