In January of this year, the plant produced 94,000 tons of urea with 24,000 tons of extra-target production. About 100,000 tons of products were shipped to foreign markets.
The Garabogaz fertilizer plant, owned by the state concern Turkmenhimiya, is located 3.5 km east of the city of Garabogaz, on the coast of the Caspian Sea. This is the largest facility of its kind in Central Asia with a design capacity of 1.15 million tons of urea and 660,000 tons of synthetic ammonia per year. It was commissioned in 2018.
