SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Yunnan Yuntianhua is planning to restart its 800,000 tonne/year urea plant in Shuifu County in Yunnan province in February next year, a company source said on Monday.

The urea plant was taken off line on 5 December, because there was a shortage of feedstock natural gas in China’s southwest region, the source said.

The shutdown of the urea plant may lead to tightened supply, as Yunnan Yuntianhua is the largest producer of urea in the region.

However, the plant shutdown will not impact the Chinese domestic market, because it is an off season for urea now, the source said.
