Koch seeks approval for expansion of Enid fertilizer plant

If a permit is approved, Koch Fertilizer plans a major expansion of its Enid fertilizer plant in northern Oklahoma.

The company applied for a construction permit to carry out the expansion. If okayed, the construction would begin at the end of 2020 and take two year for completion.

Koch wants to increase its ammonia production by making changes to the distribution system. The changes would allow the plant to provide more urea due to an increased demand for nitrogen products.

“This investment will enhance our ability to provide our customers with the nitrogen products they need by adding additional production flexibility at the Enid plant,” said Scott McGinn, an executive vice president with Koch Fertilizer.

The proposed expansion would allow the Enid plant to supply nearly 1.8 million tons of urea a year.
