USA: CVR Partners increases UAN production

USA’s CVR Partners has decided to increase the yearly production of urea ammonium nitrate to 1,075,000 tonnes from 675,000 tons by the first quarter of 2013. However, the company faces intense competition from CF Industries, which also owns about 70 percent of Terra Nitrogen. The demand for CVR products is increasing as demand for farming outputs increases, and it had favorable third-quarter results. The company also owns Coffeyville Resources Nitrogen Fertilizers, which has a manufacturing plant in North America that uses petroleum coke to manufacture nitrogen fertilizers instead of natural gas. The company is a subsidiary of CVR Energy.
