The proposal is to construct an ammonia–urea plant on the Burrup Peninsula. The plant will have a production capacity of 2300 tonnes/day (t/d) of ammonia and 3500 t/d of urea.

The plant and associated infrastructure will be composed of:

  • a natural gas supply pipeline from the North West Shelf Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Plant (to be located in a multi-user service corridor);
  • ammonia plant;
  • urea plant;
  • fluid bed granulation plant;
  • seawater desalination, treatment and storage;
  • internal power generation and distribution;
  • product storage facilities for ammonia (on-site) and urea (on-site and near wharf);
  • pipelines for ammonia export (to be located in a multi-user corridor proposed by others);
  • urea formaldehyde storage on site;
  • transfer conveyor systems and ship load out facilities for bulk granular urea;
  • ship loading facilities for load out of anhydrous (liquid) ammonia; and
  • all other utilities and infrastructure required for a world scale plant.
