Who is our customer

Indorama Eleme Fertilizer and Chemicals Limited is a Nitrogenous Fertilizer Complex with a capacity of 1.4 million metric tons per annum. The plant is located near Port Harcourt in the Niger Delta. Indorama is jointly owned by long-standing FMO client Indorama Corporation Pte Ltd Singapore, and by its Nigerian subsidiary Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Limited.

What is our funding objective?

FMO's investment will go towards Indorama's production of fertilizers (urea). The total project will consist of the following elements: a gas pipeline of 84km, plants for production of ammonia and urea, granulation facilities, storage, handling and bagging. Furthermore, there will be a jetty and ship loader, a waste water treatment facility and cooling towers. Power will be produced by Indorama's own gas turbines.

Why do we fund this investment?

The project promotes the Nigerian agriculture sector, especially food security, with a positive effect on food prices and reduction of imports. This project also contributes to industrial diversification, away from the oil and gas industry. Indorama will create 350 permanent jobs, of which 250 employees will be locally sourced.
