On October 10, CNPC laid foundation of a large chemical fertilizer project in Aksu, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. CNPC President Zhou Jiping attended the ceremony and delivered a speech.

The Aksu fertilizer project is the largest natural gas deep processing project in Southern Xinjiang, with a total planned investment of RMB 3.2 billion. Designed and constructed by CNPC’s packaged technology with independent intellectual property rights, the project mainly consists of a synthetic ammonia unit with daily productivity of 1,500 tons, a urea plant with daily productivity of 2,640 tons, and auxiliary facilities. Expected to be put into operation in 2015, the project will bring 800,000 tons of urea to the market, which will not only meet the demand in Southern Xinjiang, but also be exported to countries in Central Asia.
