DUBAI, April 2 (Reuters) - Maaden Phosphate Company (MPC)
shut its ammonia plant at Ras Al Khair on Monday for unscheduled
repairs which are expected to take about two weeks, Saudi
Arabian Mining Company (Maaden) said on Tuesday.
Maaden said in a statement to the Saudi stock market that
the shutdown for "technical repairs" would have no impact on its
ability to meet supply obligations to customers.
The plant produces ammonia used to make Diammonium Phosphate
(DAP) at the complex, but the DAP plant will continue to produce
normally using ammonia stocks, it said.
MPC is co-owned by Maaden (70 percent) and Saudi Basic
Industries Corporation (30 percent).
