Argus Fertilizer 2019. Production and Logistics in the Caspian and Black Sea Region

Argus Fertilizer 2019. Production and Logistics in the Caspian and Black Sea Region continues a series of regular Argus fertilizer events. The conference will take place on 14-15 March in Baku, Azerbaijan.

New fertilizer production capacity in Caspian and Central Asian countries will outstrip domestic demand, increasing export availabilities at Black Sea ports.

The projected increase in shipments of urea and other fertilizers to Georgian ports poses new challenges for the transport and logistics infrastructure in the Caspian and Black Sea region.

SOCAR Carbamide Plant in Sumqayit will meet Azerbaijan’s requirement for urea and enable the firm to become a key supplier to Turkey, Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

Key topics:

  • SOCAR Carbamide Plant: Challenges and prospects. Azerbaijan enters the international fertilizer market
  • Ammonia and urea markets in the Caspian and Black Sea region
  • Premium export routes for Caspian fertilizer producers
  • Requirement for new transshipment capacities and transport infrastructure facilities in Central Asia and the Caspian region
  • Azerbaijan’s agricultural industry: Current outlook and demand for nutrients

The conference will bring together fertilizer producers from Azerbaijan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, international trading companies and distributors from Turkey, Ukraine and Eastern Europe, as well as transport and logistics companies.

A visit to the production site of SOCAR Carbamide Plant will be organised as part of the event.
