Abraaj Fertiliser Holdings BV

Project Description
Through this financing we build upon our long term partnership with Indorama Group and The Abraaj Group. Before Indorama started production, Nigeria had to import most of its fertilizer. Domestic production will help West Africa. The fertilizer industry is expected to experience long-term demand growth as increases in populations and incomes drive demand for food. Urea is the most widely used fertilizer globally and continues to grow in market share due to its high nutrient content and ease of handling and storage. Within this context, Indorama is uniquely positioned due to its execution capabilities, competitive production costs, and the strength of its management team. The company will enable Nigeria as well as the larger West African region to meet the requirements of the domestic fertilizer market, while also channeling foreign exchange into Nigeria through export of urea to South and North America.
