Ohio Valley Resources LLC (OVR) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Tierra Del Fuego Power & Chemical Company Ltd (TEQSA) for the development of the proposed nitrogen fertilizer plant in Spencer County, Ind., north of Rockport. The focus of the MOU is to provide equity financing for the project construction while retaining the U.S.-based management and operations team assembled by OVR.

Doug Wilson, president/CEO of Ohio Valley Resources, stated that "the MOU provides for a mutually-beneficial arrangement to move the project forward with the existing team members and an equity investment from a credible, well established international partner." 

Representatives from TEQSA have toured the site and have obtained shareholder approval to proceed with the development of the project.

OVR and TEQSA have together selected Sinopec Engineering, Inc. (SEI), together with a US-based global engineering firm, to execute the front-end engineering design (FEED) and the detailed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the plant. SEI is a leading engineering and construction services company with extensive experience in the chemical and petrochemical industries. For more information, http://new.sei.com.cn/html/gsgk/gsgk_fzlc.asp.

The high-tech facility is expected to produce ammonia and urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) solution for fertilizer. Some of the ammonia production will serve the local utility markets for NOx control (known as selective catalytic reduction units or SCRs), which reduces emissions in coal-fired power plants and industrial facilities. In addition, the plant will produce diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), a urea solution used to reduce emissions in diesel engines.

Approximately 1,200 workers will be needed to construct the plant during a three-year period.  Upon its projected completion in 2017, the facility will employ approximately 80 full-time workers.
