LONDON (ICIS)--Ukrainian urea and ammonia producer Odessa Port Plant (OPZ) has postponed the planned maintenance turnaround on one urea line until 2013, the company said on Monday.

The unit was due to be shut down in early November for at least three weeks for routine maintenance, but the work has been put back indefinitely after OPZ took the decision not to proceed.

The decision means urea output will remain unchanged this month and there will no longer be an extra 15,000 tonnes of ammonia available for export as it will be used for urea production instead.

A spokesman for OPZ declined to give a reason for the postponement.
