Nitrogen from Natural Gas

Fertilizer for Farmers

Welcome to Northern Plains Nitrogen

VISION STATEMENT

Adding value from oil fields through farm fields by optimizing advanced production technology

MISSION STATEMENT

Create an opportunity to finance, construct and operate a nitrogen-based fertilizer plant in the Northern Plains that will utilize the increasing natural gas output in North Dakota, provide a reliable regional supply of fertilizer, and enable farmer-investors to hedge input costs and reduce dependence on imported fertilizer

FOUR PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

1. Long term, uninterrupted supply of competitively priced natural gas 2. Permittable site with access to large volumes of water, power, rail and highway access 3. Financing. Equity and Debt 4. Off-take partner to serve growers needs and assure continuous, efficient plant operation

THE ECONOMICS

 
If Northern Plains Nitrogen were in business now:

Selling price for NH3-$550-570 (Green Markets)

Cost of natural gas $4.00 Gas cost per ton NH3 $125.00 Cash costs per ton NH3 $160.00 Total costs per ton NH3 $215.00 These numbers are estimates only and does not include financing costs.

THE NEARBY MARKET FOR AGRICULTURAL NITROGEN:

 
    • • North Dakota
      • Minnesota
 
    • • South Dakota
      • Montana
 
    • • Nebraska
      • Iowa
 
    • • Manitoba
      • Saskatchewan
  Corn, wheat and canola account for a large percentage of the crops planted on the thirty-plus million acres of arable land surrounding the NPN site.

NITROGEN RATES/ACRE

 
    • • Corn: 150 lbs
 
    • • Canola: 100 lbs
 
    • • Wheat: 100 lbs
    NOTE: These are very conservative numbers.

USING AN AVERAGE OF 100 POUNDS OF NITROGEN ON 30 MILLION ACRES, USAGE WOULD BE:

    • • 1,829,000 tons of anhydrous ammonia or
 
    • • 3,260,000 tons of urea or
 
    • • 4,700,000 tons of UAN
  Currently, almost all of these cropping inputs are imported. Northern Plains Nitrogen will produce about one-third of this existing need.
