About Us

Fertiglobe is the world’s largest seaborne exporter of urea and ammonia combined, the largest producer of nitrogen fertilizers by production capacity in the MENA region, and an early mover in clean ammonia.

With plants located in the UAE, Egypt and Algeria, Fertiglobe’s production capacity comprises of 5.1 million metric tons of urea and 1.6 million metric tons of merchant ammonia annually, making it the MENA region’s largest producer of nitrogen fertilizers. It is underpinned by a young asset base and a robust storage and distribution infrastructure, with direct access to key ports on the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Arabian Gulf.

As a leader in merchant ammonia and early mover in clean ammonia projects, Fertiglobe is also uniquely positioned to capitalize on new demand for low-carbon ammonia as an efficient energy carrier or clean fuel as part of the energy transition. Clean ammonia will allow a broad range of decarbonization opportunities, including reductions in emissions from marine fuel, power generation, transportation, construction and agriculture, sectors that currently account for c.80% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Fertiglobe’s complementary production and distribution locations bring geographic diversity and enhanced market access, benefitting both existing and new customers.

We are committed to operational and commercial excellence, with a detailed efficiency enhancement strategy focused on safety, plant reliability and integrity, and cash flow optimization.

Headquartered in Abu Dhabi and incorporated in Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), Fertiglobe was formed as a strategic partnership between OCI and ADNOC in September 2019.

The company’s history is built on OCI and ADNOC’s leading MENA fertilizer businesses. OCI first entered the nitrogen fertilizer business in 2005 by constructing and acquiring a 30% stake in Egypt Basic Industries Corporation (EBIC). By 2013, OCI’s MENA fertilizer platform also included 100% of Egyptian Fertilizers Company (EFC), 51% of Sorfert Algérie, and a 60% share in EBIC, forming one of the region’s largest export platforms.
Fertil was established in Ruwais Abu Dhabi in 1980 as a joint venture between ADNOC (66%) and Total (33%) and became operational three years later, producing ammonia and urea. ADNOC acquired Total’s stake in 2018, making Fertil 100% owned by ADNOC until the strategic partnership with OCI in 2019.
