Madbouly Visits MOPCO Factory During Port Said, Damietta Tour

As part of his visit to the governorates of Port Said and Damietta, Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly has inspected the Misr Fertilizers Production Company’s (MOPCO) factory.

Madbouly’s tour of the factory included inspecting the production lines and reviewing the progress of work in its various production stages.

During his visit, Madbouly listened to an explanation from Tarek El Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, about MOPCO, which is considered the largest nitrogen fertilizer factory in Egypt.

El Molla stated that MOPCO is a success story in the petroleum sector’s history, as the company started in 2008 with one urea production plant. Thanks to the effort and hard work of the employees, the company today owns a huge fertilizer production complex that includes three factories for the production of ammonia and urea, with an average annual production of 1.2 million tons of ammonia and more than 2 million tons of granular urea.

MOPCO provides 25% of the local market’s urea needs in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture through approximately 55% of the company’s urea production, and the rest of the production is exported to the markets of Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa.

The company also provides 60% of the local market’s ammonia needs by selling surplus ammonia production locally, and the remaining quantities are exported to global markets.

Chairman of the Egyptian Petrochemicals Holding Company (ECHEM) Ibrahim Makki said that MOPCO is working to maximize the added value of the company’s products and develop its factories by starting carbon recovery and storage activities.

Meanwhile, MOPCO’s Chairman Ahmed Mahmoud stated that MOPCO is currently conducting studies for a group of integrated projects, including the melamine project, which is an integrated project with urea factories, with a planned production capacity of about 40,000 tons annually.
